Visiting Hours

Visitation hours are generally between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. After 9 p.m., visitors must enter via a designated hospital entrance and go through a hospital-specific visitor identification process.

The Guthrie Clinic’s visitation practices are non-discriminatory and do not restrict, limit, or deny visitation on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability. A patient has the right, subject to their consent, to receive the visitors they designate, including but not limited to a spouse, domestic partner (including a same-sex domestic partner), another family member, or a friend, and it is their right to withdraw or deny such consent at any time.

Visitation may be restricted or limited when it is deemed clinically necessary and/or as required by federal/state/local regulations. For example, visitors with fever or flu-like symptoms or who have an acute or communicable illness/condition are not permitted to visit.

Visitors are subject to all relevant policies of the hospital and of The Guthrie Clinic and may be asked to leave if their behavior warrants (such as: not following Guthrie’s Tobacco-free Environment policy,  displaying violent behavior, or not following an infection prevention policy).

Some departments have additional visitation procedures:
