Visitors can be good medicine for patients. Family members and friends are welcome to visit. However, to enhance the quality of care and to ensure our patients have adequate rest for recovery in a quiet and safe environment, we have visiting hours and policies.
Children under the age of 12 are to remain on the first floor. Younger children need to have adult supervision. In exceptional circumstances, arrangements for underage children to visit patients may be made by the Patient Representative, Chaplain or Visitor Information Assistant working with the nursing unit. Call 706-475-3898 for assistance.
