Providence St. Joseph's Hospital has no set visiting hours. However, times may vary from patient to patient. Talk with a nurse about the best time to visit.

If you are not visiting in a patient’s room, please do not wait in the hallway. This insures privacy for our other patients, and allows us quick access to any patient, if needed.

Patients may be transferred to another room due to improved condition or changing needs, so please check at the nurses’ station for the room number.
