• Visitor Information

    Your family and friends are welcome to most areas of the hospital during open visiting hours. Supervised, well-behaved children may visit as well. Visitation by children age six and under should be discouraged except in extenuating circumstances. Persons with infections should not visit while symptomatic (such as a cough). Visitors to patients in isolation precautions must use good hand washing technique and wear the proper attire under the direction of our nursing staff. It is recommended that only two persons visit a patient at one time. The number of visitors may be restricted at any given time at the discretion of the house supervisors. Visitors must abide by caution signs. Some of our units have special visiting hours because of the critical nature of the care being given.

    Visiting Hours

    General Visiting Hours are 9 AM to 10 PM, except as indicated for medical necessity.


    We recommend immediate family only. If you require extended family visitation, please limit the number in the room. We provide waiting areas for family and friends.


    Visitor parking at our hospital is charged at a rate similar to other hospitals in the First Hill area as required by the City of Seattle. We have designated some locations for specific personnel. Our security or other personnel are available to escort you and your visitors to your vehicle. Just dial the operator and ask for an escort.


    Public restrooms are located throughout the hospital. Patient restrooms are for the use of patients only; visitors should use only public restrooms.

    Overnight Stays

    One family member may stay overnight if the patient has a private room. Overnight visitors should talk to the nurse. Limited sleep chairs/cots are available. Visitors may not stay overnight in semi-private rooms only if space permits and if the roommate agrees.

    Food and Nutrition Services

If you have any questions about our menu, please let your caregiver know.
