Visiting a Hospital Patient

YRMC recognizes the value of visitor and family support to the healing process and is committed to provide a respectful and safe environment for all patients, visitors and staff.

NOTE: There may be instances where exceptions to these general policies may be appropriate. The Nursing Supervisor, Department Manager, or designee may determine whether deviations from these policies are acceptable.

Visiting Hours

Open family and guest visiting is allowed and encouraged. Each department will develop guidelines for visitors that encourage family and guest participation, while maintaining the health and healing of the patient as a priority.

After 8:00 pm at YRMC East in Prescott Valley and 8:30 pm at YRMC West in Prescott, all visitors will enter the hospital through the Emergency Department and remain in designated visiting areas.

Minors are welcome when accompanied by a responsible adult.

If the patient is a new mom in the Family Birthing Center, visiting children must be a brother or sister to the baby or at least 12 years old.
