About Mercy

Visiting Hours

Visiting hours to most hospital units are between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. daily.

Women & Infants' Center and critical care units

Visiting hours for the maternity and critical care units vary. Please check with the nursing staff or refer to the signs posted on the doors to these units for more information.


Children may visit patients on most floors and units. However, we ask that children who are younger than 14 be accompanied by an adult who is responsible for the child’s behavior. We also ask that children stay in a patient’s room or a visitors’ lounge throughout their visit.
