Visiting Guidelines

Northumberland Hills Hospital encourages visits from family and friends throughout our patients' healing process. We know that having loved ones nearby while in hospital makes patients more comfortable and speeds up their recovery.

NHH does not restrict visiting to certain times of the day or evening. Through the Visiting Guidelines provided below, we list certain requirements, particularly related to entry/exit after hours. We thank all visitors for their appreciation of our need to strike the right balance between visiting and the healing process and, further, to protect all patients' rights to privacy and confidentiality. NHH reserves the right to limit, restrict or deny patient visitation based on the needs of the patients or the organization.
