Norwegian American Hospital (NAH) believes that patient and family involvement play an important role in the healing process. To facilitate this partnership, NAH provides an open visitation policy that welcomes and treats all visitors equally. Visitors are allowed 24 hours a day any day of the week. In some cases, restrictions to this policy may apply in order to maintain the safety and privacy of patients in the case of semi-private rooms the healing environment for the other patients in the room. If restrictions are required this will be communicated to visitors by the care team.
We encourage families and friends to partner with us in the healing process at Norwegian American Hospital, and hope our open visitation policy promotes a positive, welcoming environment.
