Artesia General Hospital recognizes how important it is for our patients to enjoy visits from family and friends.  We allow flexibility in visiting based on a patient’s condition and preference; however, we encourage you to check with our Admission’s Department or the Nurse’s Station prior to visiting to make sure your visit occurs at the most appropriate time.

We expect all patients, visitors, and staff to be respectful and non-disruptive while in our organization. Thank you for helping us maintain the safety of everyone.

Visiting hours are from 7:00 am until 9:00 pm daily on our medical floors.  Visiting hours for our Geriatric Psychiatry are from 12:45 pm – 1:45 pm and 4:45 pm – 5:45 pm.    Although we do not generally restrict the number of visitors or visitation hours, visiting rules may be modified to ensure our patients’ recovery and are based on infection control needs and individual patient condition.

We strongly discourage children under the age of 14 and persons who may have a contagious illness (i.e. sneezing, coughing, fever, etc) from visiting for their own health and safety as well as for our patients’ well being.  Pets, other than for physical handicapped persons, are not allowed.

Smoking is only allowed in designated outdoor areas. To support a healthy environment the Artesia General Hospital campus will be smoke free effective July 1st, 2016.  Thanks for your consideration.
