Accessibility Statement

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.

We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.

Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact so that we may be of assistance.

Thank you. We hope you enjoy using our website.

Visitation Rights

COVID-19 Updates, Information and Visiting Restrictions

Having visitors is an important part of a patient’s stay. The joy that family and friends bring can actually help improve the recovery process. For the best experience, please review our Visitation Rights for Patients below for helpful information prior to your visit.

Visitation Rights for Patients

We recognize the benefits of patients having the comfort of a support person, whether a family member, close friend or other individual at their side during their hospital stay.  As a patient, you have the right to have a family member or support person of your choice regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, age, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation or disability.

Additionally, a patient has the right to receive the visitors that he/she (or a his/her support person, if the patient is unable to speak for himself/herself) designates.  Visitors may include but are not limited to a spouse, a domestic partner (including a same sex domestic partner), another family member, or a friend.   Visitation rights will not be restricted, limited or denied on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.

Patients, or the support person acting on their behalf, have the right to deny visitors at any time.

Restrictions or limitations for visitors may be necessary when:

  • Visitation may interfere with or hinder the care or treatment of patients
  • The potential for exposure to infectious or hazardous material place the patient and visitor at risk
  • The hospital is aware of existing court orders restricting contact
  • Disruptive, threatening, or violent behavior occurs
  • Rest and privacy is needed
  • Visitation hours have ended or a nurse/doctor needs individual time with the patient
