Visiting Hours

At NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, we partner with patients, families and friends to promote a safe and comfortable healing environment. All visitors chosen by the patient or by a support person will have visitation privileges consistent with the patient's wishes.

Visitation privileges will not be limited or denied based on age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture, language, physical or mental disability, socioeconomic status, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity or expression. Visitors may include but are not limited to a spouse, same or opposite sex domestic partner, another family member, or a friend, for emotional support during the course of their stay. Please note, for the well-being of our patients, members of the care team may limit visiting. Our staff will work with visitors and patients, especially those in semi-private rooms, to allow patients time to rest and sleep.

To provide patients with support from their loved ones and promote a healing environment, General Visitation Hours are from 7:00 am until 9:00 pm daily. Out of respect for all our patients, we limit visitors at the bedside to two at a time. Special requests for visiting should be discussed with the patient’s nurse.

From 9:00 pm to 7:00 am, we honor quiet times, placing cell phones on vibrate and speaking in quiet tones. We encourage only the patient’s support person or a loved one to remain at the hospital with the patient at that time.

Please download our Patient and Visitor Guides or Visitor Tip Sheet for helpful information to have before or during your visit to our Hospital.

Thank you for supporting a quiet and healing environment.
