Visitor Guide

Visiting Guidelines

Visits from loved ones can be an important part of the healing process; visiting hours vary to meet a healthy balance of a patient’s need to connect with loved ones and get enough rest. Other factors, such as a patient’s condition, daily care activities and procedure schedule, play a role in visiting hours.

To make sure you visit at a good time, consult with the patient directly or with his or her immediate family. You can call the hospital’s main number, (616) 392-5141 to be connected with the appropriate nursing station for visiting hours and instructions.

Children are welcome to visit, but please remember that hospital rooms are not childproof. Therefore, children must be supervised by an adult visitor at all times.

Visiting the Boven Birth Center and Special Care Nursery

General visiting hours for the birth center are from 7 am – 9 pm. In an effort to preserve quiet family time and bonding, visitors may also gather in the family lounge. Learn more about Boven Birth Center.

Visiting Behavioral Health Services

Patients on the Behavioral Health floor are involved in classes and therapy during the day, so visiting hours are scheduled in the evening when there is free time. Hours are posted on the unit and given to family members at admission. Please check with a member of the immediate family or call the hospital's main number for more information.
