Visitor Information

Visiting Hours

General Visiting Hours are 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. unless limited by the care team for medical necessity.

We encourage family and friends, including supervised, well-behaved children, to visit the hospital during open visiting hours. Due to the medical complexities of our patients, we ask that children under the age of six refrain from visiting, except in extenuating circumstances. We also ask that people with infections not visit while symptomatic (such as a cough). Also, those guests with loved ones in isolation should take extra precautions such as thorough hand washing and proper attire, which our nursing staff can help you understand.

It is recommended that only two persons visit at a time. Please remember that the House Supervisor may recommend limited visitation for the best possible recovery of your loved one. Additionally, some of our units have special visiting hours because of the critical nature of the care we are providing.

If your loved one is receiving care in our Intensive Care Unit, we recommend immediate family only. If a large group does wish to visit, we ask you limit the number of guests in the room at one time and please take advantage of our waiting areas as needed.

Parking and Security

While visitor parking at our hospital is not free, it is charged at a rate similar to other hospitals in the area and is required by the City of Seattle. We have designated a few spaces for specific personnel, and our security staff is available to escort you to your vehicle - just dial the operator and ask for an escort.

Restrooms

Public restrooms are located throughout our hospital. Restrooms within your room are for your use only.

Overnight Stays

One family member may stay overnight if the patient has a private room. Please speak with the nurse to request a chair/cot. Visitors may stay overnight in semi-private rooms only if space permits and if the roommate agrees.

Meal Opportunities

Nutrition plays an important role in your recovery, so you will receive a balanced meal specific to your needs. If you would like to share a meal in our hospital with a friend or family member, please speak to the nurse on duty to request a guest tray. There may be a nominal charge and we ask for two hours of advance notice when possible. Vending machines are accessible 24 hours a day on the basement level.

Family Involvement

Family members may meet with your clinical team biweekly or upon request for a Care Conference. These collaborative meetings allow your loved ones and the care team to discuss your condition, progress made, goals, discharge planning and more. To schedule these meetings, please reach out to your Social Worker, Case Manager or Nurse Supervisor.
