Visiting Hours Policies

Recommended visiting hours are 8am to 8:30pm. We ask that only two persons visit at a time; additional visitors may be approved by nursing staff. Children under age 12 must be supervised by an adult visitor at all times. We do ask that you designate one member of your family to call the hospital and relay the information to others. Each patient has a direct phone number to their room that is given to the patient upon admission. If you do not know what that number is please call the operator at (863) 533-8111 and ask for the room number or ask the patient's nurse.
