For the safety and security of the infants, staff and families in The Joyce Stock Snuggery, the following visitor policy is provided:
- During labor – We encourage up to 2 labor support people plus the dad/significant other. These 3 people will remain the only 3 allowed during this time.
- After delivery – During the hospital stay visitors are welcome anytime during The Joyce Stock Snuggery visiting hours (this does not include dad/significant other).
- Siblings of the newborn may visit anytime when accompanied by an adult. The sibling must be free of any signs of illness.
Fathers/Significant Other are welcome anytime.
All other visitors may visit from 9:00am – 1:30pm and 3:30pm – 8:00pm.
Exceptions to this include flu or any other community outbreak where infection poses a larger threat.
Note: All visitors will be greeted by Security and asked to show a photo ID. These include, but are not limited to, a driver’s license, military ID, or School ID. If a visitor does not have an ID, the security team will work with the visitor on a case by case basis. A photo will be taken and a visitor badge will be issued to give you access to the Hospital campus. We appreciate your cooperation.
1:30pm – 3:30pm is Quiet Time on The Joyce Stock Snuggery to promote rest for mom & baby.
Visiting is suspended during that time for everyone other than fathers/significant others. This is a time for you to rest without fear of being interrupted by visitors, nurses or anyone dropping in. We believe you need time to get to know your baby, breast feed, or just nap. This is your time out from the hectic routine of hospital. Your nurse will, of course, be available for any assistance you need.
