Patient and Visitor Guide

Family and friends are important to a patient's recovery, and visitors are welcome. We recognize the important role visitors play in helping you through your healthcare experience. Your visitors are your choice. You have the right to select the visitors you wish to support and spend time with you. They may include family, friends, a spouse, a domestic partner and others.

Guidelines for visitors may vary based on patients' conditions and need for rest. Nurses can provide specific information.

Two visitors allowed with the following exceptions:

  • One visitor allowed during a patient’s cancer exam appointment.
  • No visitors allowed during their cancer treatment/infusion appointment; check with staff as there may be an exception.
  • Any visitors who have a fever or other cold- or flu-like symptoms will not be allowed.
  • Other exceptions may apply.

Your cancer resources

We encourage you to be proactive about your treatment as soon as you are diagnosed. It will help you feel more in control of your situation, which is very important as you progress through your journey. That includes asking your care team questions, educating yourself as much as you choose about your type of cancer, and seeking fellowship from one of our cancer support groups.
