Current Visitor Policy

  • West Hills Hospital respects the patient’s right to have family and significant others visit while they are hospitalized and recognizes the importance of visitation to the healing process. In order to deliver safe patient care, restrictions on visitation may be required.
  • Visitors must be in generally good health without infections or communicable diseases. Persons with contagious respiratory disease or any signs of communicable infection are not permitted to visit patients.
  • It is strongly recommended that visitors be over the age of 12. Children in waiting areas must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Unless there are special circumstances, visitation is limited to two visitors for each patient at a time.
  • The current visiting hours are 8:00am to 8:00pm daily; however, visiting hours are subject to change based on prevailing County Health Department recommendations.

Circumstances may allow for specific exceptions to any visitation restrictions described on this webpage. Those circumstances include religious visitation as well as a designated support person for a patient with a disability to provide assistance with communication or other necessary components of the patient's treatment. All persons entering under an exception remain subject to appropriate infection control protocols.
