Patients & Visitors

Thank you for choosing Methodist Hospital for your health care needs.  We believe our patients deserve the best quality of care possible and we understand that sometimes you may feel overwhelmed with your hospital experience.  We offer an array of resources to support you and your family during your visit to Methodist Hospital.

Patient Visitors

As a patient, you have the right to choose who visits you. The hospital may not exclude a visitor unless that person’s presence disturbs you or another individual’s rights, privacy, safety, or the visit is not advised for medical or therapeutic reasons. You may request that any visitor be escorted from your room at any time for any reason.

You also have the right to choose someone to serve as your support person. This person may be your spouse, domestic partner (including same-sex domestic partner), or another family member or friend who will be present with you for support during your stay. Your support person may or may not be your legal representative with power of attorney.

Visiting hours for individuals other than your support person end at 8:30 p.m. or as determined on a patient-specific basis. Visiting hours may be restricted during seasonal illness in the community.

An adult must accompany all children who visit the hospital, and health and age restrictions may apply. Family members should check with the nurse before bringing children into the patient’s room.
