Visiting Hours

Our hours for most patient areas are from 11:00 am to 8:00 pm every day. Parents are allowed in Pediatrics at any time. Visiting in the Intensive Care and Critical Care units is limited family members only, 10 minutes per hour.

When visiting a friend or loved one, please limit the number of visitors to two at a time, since too many visitors can tire the patient and disturb others. Please do not plan on visiting if you are sick or have a contagious disease. Also do not bring food, beverages or medications without first checking with a member of the nursing staff.

When visiting a child in the hospital, parents, family members and friends may bring toys and books from home. Before giving items to the child, please check with a member of the nursing staff to ensure that the toy is safe and appropriate for the child. A favorite toy or book can bring a child great comfort.

Addison Gilbert Hospital was founded in 1889 and to this day provides state-of-the-art inpatient and outpatient care to residents of the Cape Ann community.
