Patient & Visitors

Visiting at Mile Bluff

At Mile Bluff, the comfort, safety and care of patients is the top priority. You are encouraged to visit your loved ones in the hospital, but are also advised to consider their needs as well. Visitors play an important role in maintaining the health and wellness of patients.

Also, please note that those visiting after 3 pm on Saturdays and Sundays will need to access the facility through the emergency room entrance.

Due to COVID-19, visitor restrictions are in place. Please review them prior to coming to the hospital.

Before you arrive for a visit, you are asked to contact the patient you wish to see. He or she may be scheduled for tests and appointments throughout the day, or need time to rest after a procedure, so it's important for you to know when your loved one will be available for visitors.

Please do not visit if you have the flu or other contagious diseases, such as, chicken pox or measles. Exposure to these and other viruses can pose a great risk not only to the patient you are visiting, but to other patients in the facility.

In addition, it's required that all children who are brought to the facility are supervised at all times, and that all visitors do their best to control their volumes to ensure it's quiet enough for the individuals in patient rooms to heal in peace.
