Our new building is one year old! Check out our Patient and Visitor Guide (PDF).

Visits from family and friends help make a patient's stay more pleasant.  It's always a good idea to call first and make sure the patient you are visiting is ready for guests. Please call 612-365-1000, or toll free, 855-267-5289, to be connected to a patient's room.

Please follow these general rules:
  • Please ask a nurse about specific visitation guidelines for the unit you plan to visit. 
  • Visitors with children or visitors who are seeing a patient with a weak immune system (an immuno-suppressed patient), should check with a nurse on the unit before visiting.
  • Each day, nurses will question visiting children with a simple questionnaire to screen for infectious diseases. 
  • If you or a family member have been exposed to or has had chicken pox or measles in the past three weeks, please talk to a nurse on the unit you're visiting. 
  • Please do not visit if you or a child visiting with you has an infectious condition, such as a cold, the flu, nausea, etc.
