    Visiting guidelines

    Flu season 2017

    We have restricted visiting guidelines to protect all patients, visitors and stuff due to influenza.

    St. Francis' visiting hours are 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. From 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. you must enter through the Emergency Department, show identification and get a visitor badge.

    All patient rooms are private. All Care North rooms have couches that convert to beds, and Care South rooms have recliners that convert to beds. Additional sleeping cots are always available upon request.

    There is also a family room in Care North available to all visitors to take showers, warm up food or just be alone for a bit.

    All parking is free.
