Visiting Hours

We're glad to have you.

Next to our patients, our patients' friends and family members are the most important people we know. Spending time with someone who cares during a hospital stay stimulates smiles and lifts spirits —on both sides of the hospital bed. That's why we encourage visitors to come see us, sit, and stay awhile; it's a healthy experience for everyone.

Visiting Hours

Visiting hours may be restricted for short periods during the day for doctor rounding, nurse reports or a change in the patient's health status. We ask that visitors be respectful of patient needs and the comfort and privacy needs of others during their visit.

  • Wash your hands often while visiting our facility. It prevents the spread of germs that can cause infection.
  • If you've got a fever, cold, or any infection symptoms, please stay home.
  • Dukes Memorial Hospital is a smoking- and tobacco-free campus. Smoking, including the use of e-cigarettes, vaping devices and other similar products, along with the use of any other tobacco products, is not allowed anywhere on the grounds.
  • Don't bring patients food or candies unless your attending doctor gives permission.
