Visiting Hours

Visitors are welcome at West Florida Healthcare because we know that patents recover more quickly when they receive support and encouragement from family members and friends. Quiet time begins at 9:00pm, so please be respectful of our patients’ need for rest.

Patient-Centered Visitation in our Critical Care Units

As part of West Florida Healthcare’s Patient-Centered Visitation model of care, we offer Open Visiting for extended family and friends during the following times:

9:00am - 9:30am
1:00pm - 1:30pm
5:00pm - 5:30pm
8:00pm - 8:30pm

Two visitors may be asked to rotate in the patient room to allow for only two people to be at the bedside during open visiting hours for extended family and friends. One patient/family-appointed visitor may visit outside of open visiting times between the hours of 9:00am and 9:00pm. Visitation after 9:00pm will be based on patient safety and individual needs. Please ensure that your assigned safety pass is visible.

We strongly encourage visitors to take this overnight opportunity to get rest or sleep. Being well-rested is important for your personal well-being while your loved one is in the hospital and when they are ready to go home.

For the safety of our patients and staff, our front doors are opened at 5:00am and secured at 9:00pm each day.
