Visiting a Patient

Westerly Hospital does not have set visiting hours because we do not consider family and friends as visitors but rather as vital members of the healthcare team in our patient and family centered partnership. We try very hard to base visits around patient and family needs. We recognize that visits by family and friends are an important part of a patient’s recovery.

Friends or family members who are ill should not visit.

Please keep in mind that visits may be interrupted if the patient needs to leave the room for treatment, x-rays, or other tests.

If the patient is being treated in their room, visitors may be asked to step out at the patient’s request.
