Visiting Hours

Mary Greeley Medical Center provides flexible times for family and friends to visit loved ones. Below are our general guidelines. 


To provide privacy to our patients and maintain security for our babies, we request that all visitors check in at the Birthways desk. Birthways values our new moms' need for rest; therefore, we provide a mid-afternoon quiet time, during which napping is encouraged. Please consider this when planning to visit our families. We have open visitation, which allows a visitor of any age to visit with the permission of our patients. Please remember to keep your visits brief to allow our parents to rest. While you are sleeping at night, parents are awake caring for their newborn. You may be required to leave at the request of nursing or medical staff. We may make adjustments to the visitation policy during the influenza season to keep our families healthy.
