Visitor Information

Ascension welcomes family and friends of our patients. We’ve provided the information below to help make your visit convenient and comfortable.

Visiting Hours

Recommended visiting hours are 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. daily.

Patient visitation from 8 p.m. – 8 a.m. is limited to emergencies determined by the medical, nursing staff or individuals participating in patient care. Anyone visiting under these circumstances must get an after-hours visitor pass from the Security Department. Please use the Emergency Department entrance (off South 16th Street).

For the safety of our patients, visitors who have symptoms of a cold, flu or other respiratory illness are encouraged to refrain from visiting patients until symptoms subside. Patients have the right to decide who can and cannot visit. If you have special concerns, please discuss them with your caregiver.

Children's Visitation

Children younger than 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult.

Expectant Mothers

Expectant mothers admitted to the labor and delivery unit are restricted to two visitors while in labor and delivery/recovery rooms.

Emergency Department

Emergency Department visitors are welcome 24/7; however, patients seeking emergency care often require prompt medical attention, which could delay immediate visitation. To make sure we can give the best health care possible, our Emergency Department staff may limit the number of visitors.

If you have questions about visiting hours at St. Francis, please call 414-647-5000.
