WCA Hospital Visitation Hours

We believe strongly in including our patients’ loved ones and caregivers in the healing process.  When family, friends and caregivers work together, patients often experience a higher level of safe, quality care that leads to an enhanced recovery and hospital stay.

While each unit may have recommendation guidelines appropriate for that level of care, hospital visitation guidelines are as follows:

The patient has the right to designate visitors, and has the right to withdraw or deny visitors at any time. WCA Hospital will not restrict, limit or otherwise deny visitation privileges on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity sexual orientation or disability. An individual of the patient’s choice may be present with the patient for emotional support during the course of the stay, unless the individual’s presence infringes on others rights, safety or is medically or therapeutically contraindicated.

We ask our guests:

The following recommendations are to encourage adequate rest for the patient’s healing process:
