As part of The Valley Hospital's Patient and Family Centered Care approach to care, family members/Partners in Care, as defined by the patient, are welcome at the patient's bedside 24 hours a day, seven days a week. (Visiting hours are limited for visitors of patients in our Critical Care Units; please see the Critical Care Visitor Information page for details.)

Visiting Guidelines

Respecting the privacy, comfort and rest needs of all patients is a high priority. To help guide you through your loved one’s stay at Valley, please keep the following in mind:  

  • You may enter the hospital through the main lobby 24 hours a day. From 5 a.m. to 8 p.m., the doors will be open. At all other times, a security officer will grant you access and confirm your visit with the patient.
  • Upon your entrance, you’ll receive a guest badge. Please ensure your badge is visible at all times.   
  • Quiet Time, designated between the hours of 8 p.m. and 7 a.m., is observed every day to promote a restful healing environment for patients. (Specific units may have additional designated quiet times.) During Quiet Time, lights are lowered, noise is reduced, and disruptions by staff and family members/Partners in Care are limited.
