At St. Joseph's Hospital-South, we have open visiting hours. We prefer you respect the needs of the patient for proper rest time at night, and it is requested that you not visit anyone if you are sick. We do allow for one person to stay with the patient 24 hours a day, seven days a week, if desired. We want your child’s experience here to be as pleasant as possible.
