Visiting hours are from 6:00 am to 8:00 pm

Patients may have an unlimited number of visitors per day, with no more than two visitors at a time. Additional unit-based exceptions or restrictions may apply. For the health and safety of our patients and staff, physicians and staff reserve the right to limit visitors for some patients.

Children of any age are permitted but must be accompanied by a responsible adult (please note: children under the age of 13 are not permitted to visit the NICU).

Masks are required only in areas of the hospital in which oncology patient care occurs. 

Special considerations for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

Parents may designate up to four people to visit during the baby’s stay. These visitors may not change during the baby's stay. Two people are allowed at the bedside at a time. No visitors younger than 13 will be allowed to visit.  Further, anyone with signs or symptoms of illness should not visit.

By entering the Swedish Medical Center building, you are attesting that the answer is “NO” to these questions:

  • Do you have symptoms of COVID–19, which include: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea?
  • Within the past 14 days, have you been in close physical contact (six feet or closer for at least 15 minutes) with a person who is known to have COVID–19 or with anyone who has the symptoms listed above?
  • Are you currently waiting on the results of a COVID-19 test or have you been diagnosed with COVID–19 in the last 10 days?

All patients seeking care for an emergency medical condition, regardless of their vaccination status or ability to wear a mask, will be admitted to the emergency department. We will provide non-mask alternative accommodations.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation around these safety measures.

Circumstances may allow for specific exceptions to any visitation restrictions described on this webpage. Those circumstances include religious visitation as well as a designated support person for a patient with a disability to provide assistance with communication or other necessary components of the patient's treatment. All persons entering under an exception remain subject to appropriate infection control protocols.
