The modified visitation hours for minors (2-14 years of age) will be as follows:

Please note that all visitors, including minors, must adhere to our existing health and safety protocols, which include wearing masks and following proper hygiene. Children must be under parental supervision and always remain in the room. Should the family need to leave the room, they must wait in the 3rd-floor lobby waiting area.

Due to space limitations at some UHealth locations, the number of visitors may be limited.

Visitation guidelines will be modified as needed.
