Women's Care Center Visitation Guidelines

The visitation guidelines are based upon the specific procedure and location within the unit.

LDR/Antenatal Testing

Patients may have one support person during routine testing. Children are discouraged during this time unless properly supervised by an additional responsible adult.


Support person(s) are limited to two persons while the patient is in labor. A significant other person of the mother's choosing is provided with a patient identification band that is part of the four band set. The additional support person(s) are required to wear a "SUPPORT ID" band that is removed when the support person(s) leave the premises after the delivery.


Visitors are welcomed for a short visit following delivery, at the discretion of the patient and the patient care providers.
