NOTE: Due to the rise in flu cases in our area, we are implementing temporary age restrictions for visitors. Effective Dec. 28, 2019, children 14 and under may not enter any inpatient area, including The Birthing Center, NICU, nursery and ICU. This includes siblings of infants. All guests planning to visit those units must be screened for illness. Visitors who are ill or “appearing sick” (i.e. cough, runny nose) will not be allowed to enter any inpatient units. Thank you for your understanding.

When you visit a loved one at Liberty Hospital, we’re happy to see you because we believe visitors are good medicine for our patients. That’s why we do everything we can do make you feel comfortable while you’re here.

Smoking policy

Liberty Hospital’s entire campus is tobacco-free and vaping-free inside and out. All patients, visitors, employees and physicians must leave the Liberty Hospital campus in order to smoke or vape.

Visiting hours

Family members and friends are welcome to visit. However, patient care is our primary concern at Liberty Hospital, and in order to enhance the quality of care, specific visiting regulations have been established for each unit. Patients, family, staff and physicians may participate in defining the visiting times to meet your individual needs.

Visiting guidelines

Following are general guidelines for visitors:

  • Visitors must dress appropriately and must wear shirts and shoes.
  • If you have a cold or any other contagious disease, you should not visit patients.
  • Please keep visits brief.
  • Visitors must maintain a quiet environment and avoid unnecessary noise.
  • Visitors may be asked to leave the patient’s room during tests or treatments, or when the doctor or nurse needs to see the patient.
  • The number of visitors may be limited based on the patient's condition and out of respect for other patients.
  • Only service animals are allowed inside the hospital. (No pet visitation)


Visitors should check with the nurse before bringing gifts, including food or drink, to patients. Please check with the nurse to make sure your gift is appropriate. On the intensive care unit, please check with the unit nurse regarding gifts or flowers for the patient.

No latex policy

Due to latex-related allergies in some of our patients and staff members, Liberty Hospital has adopted a latex-free guideline for all areas of the hospital. As part of this guideline, the hospital does not accept latex balloons for patients, their family members or hospital staff.

We love having friends and family visit our patients. We only ask that all visitors follow guidelines that were made with patient care in mind.
