Below are some helpful tips when visiting your loved ones at The Birth Place at Community Hospital Birth Place.

  • Visitation will only be limited for clinical reasons, privacy reasons, or at the request of the patient.

  • The Birth Place will have R & R (Rest & Relaxation) time between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. daily, so moms and babies can rest. Please be respectful of this time and do not plan your visit then.

  • Community Hospital is a non-smoking campus and no smoking is allowed on the premises.

  • Please enter through the main lobby to visit moms and babies until 10 p.m. After 10 p.m. you’ll have to enter through the emergency department. The main lobby reopens at 6:00 a.m. The Birth Place is a locked unit for security of our newborns, so when you arrive on our floor please ring the doorbell for admission. You must know the first and last name of the patient you are visiting so we make sure you are visiting the right patient.

  • Visitors who are sick, or have been exposed to communicable diseases should not plan on visiting moms and babies. For the safety of our patients, we may ask sick visitors to leave.

  • Because all medical information is confidential, we are not able to provide information concerning the status of moms and babies to anyone.

  • Please use good hand hygiene as appropriate infection control measures.

  • Because babies will typically be in the same room as mom, moms will decide when friends and family can visit.

  • Upon admission to The Birth Place, you will receive a visitor pass, please wear this somewhere easily visible to others for the safety of our patients.

  • Children under 8 are not allowed, unless they are siblings of the newborn. Children under 14 need to be supervised by an adult at all times, and this adult cannot be a patient.

  • Visitors are welcome to eat in our cafeteria, have free parking, and access to Wi-Fi internet.

  • Any other concerns please see Community Hospital’s Visiting Hours Policy.
