Visitors are asked to leave during nursing care and at mealtimes (7:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.) unless they are coming to help feed the patient. Visiting a patient is not possible if the following restrictions apply:

  • The patient requests no visitors
  • The physician writes an order restricting visitation
  • During periods of flu outbreaks

Children may visit patients provided that:

  • The child is accompanied by an adult visitor at all times
  • The child is not ill
  • The child is wearing shoes at all times

Nursing staff can limit the number of visitors and duration of the visit in the best interest the patient.


Minnesota law prohibits smoking in the hospital at all times to protect the health and safety of our patients.


Each patient room has a telephone. Dial 9 to get an outside line. Local calls are free and long distance calls must be charged to a phone card or made as a “collect” call. If you require assistance, dial “O” and ask for help from the information desk. Phones are also located in the front lobby and hallway.

Waiting Rooms

Five waiting areas are located throughout the hospital and are available to visitors, family members and patients. Make yourself comfortable in these areas.
