Visiting Guidelines

Check In: All visitors are required to check-in at the hospitals main nurse’s station prior to entering any patient room.

General Visiting Hours: No specific visiting hours are designated; however, we do ask that you keep visits within reason. Visitors should respect a patient’s privacy and wishes while in the hospital. CVMC makes every effort to provide a safe, comfortable environment for patients, their families, and friends. We ask that visitors please respect the following rules while visiting.

  • Children should be supervised at all times.
  • Visitors should check with the nursing staff before bringing in food, personal items or flowers. Restriction of these items may be an important part of the patient’s care.
  • Some patients in the hospital are very ill and we strive for a quiet, healing environment. Visitors should be considerate of other patients.
  • CVMC respects patient’s privacy, so visitors may be asked to step out during provider consultations or while treatments are being given.
  • Disruptive and inappropriate behavior can result in visitors’ being asked to leave.

Labor and Delivery Visiting Hours: CVMC asks all visitors to respect the safety and security needs of our smallest patients.

  • Family and friends are encouraged to visit patients. While no formal specific visiting hours have been established, all visitors are encouraged to leave the hospital by 10.00 p.m.
  • All visitors must check in at the nursing station
  • Siblings of the new baby are encouraged to visit as long as they are accompanied and monitored by an adult. To promote patient and newborn bonding, other children are encouraged to visit during the hours of 7am to 10pm.

Where to Eat

Central Valley Medical Center’s Dietary and Nutrition Staff are dedicated to providing our patients with nutritious and delicious meals.

It can be hard to find a comfortable, convenient place to rest and eat while your loved one is in the hospital. Room service is available to patients; our dietary department works hand-in-hand with the patient physician to ensure that their dietary requirements are being met. Meals will be served to you three times a day. If you desire to have food brought in, please check with your nurse or a member of your care team to make sure it fits within your dietary guidelines.

Consultations for diabetes, cardiac and obesity related issues are provided by a registered dietitian upon physician referral. If you have any questions about your diet or the menu, please call 435-623-3096.
