Visiting a Patient

Family members and close friends are encouraged to visit patients during their hospital stay. Harris Health System is committed to ensuring that our patients and their loved ones have a pleasant experience when visiting one of our hospitals.

Be sure to contact the hospital's patient care unit before you visit to determine the appropriate visiting hours. Most units allow for some flexibility in the patient visiting hours. However, Harris Health hospitals' intensive care units have restricted visiting hours and shorter visiting times to ensure patients receive the rest they need during their stay.

Since patients may have a restricted diet for medical reasons, please check with the nursing staff before bringing any food for a patient.

Hospital visitors are welcome to eat in the cafeterias. Harris Health cafeterias are generally open from early morning until late evening. Hours of operation are posted at the cafeteria entrances.

For information about parking, please visit our Security and Parking page.
