Visiting hours

We welcome all of our patients` visitors, as we know what a difference the support of close family and friends can make. However, bed rest and a quiet hospital environment is vital for healing. In the interest of our patients’ wellbeing and the much needed rest that all of our patients require we do enforce visiting times. Visitors are restricted to three per patient at a time. Children are welcome but they must have an adult supervising them.
