Hospital Visiting Hours

Family and friends of Saint Mary’s patients are welcome in most areas of the hospital during daily visiting hours, which are 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. Supervised, well-behaved children may visit as well. The main entrance door opens at 7 a.m.

All hospital doors remain open until 9 p.m. If you need to leave or enter the hospital after 9 p.m., use the Emergency Department entrance. The department’s doors remain open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.


Saint Mary’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) has a specially designated waiting area, and due to the nature of care given there, visitation is limited. These special variances are:

  • ICU visitation is limited to 1-hour intervals at the following times:
    • 8-9 a.m.
    • 12-1 p.m.
    • 5-6 p.m.
    • 8-9 p.m.
  • Visitation is limited to immediate family only.
  • Children under 12 years of age are not allowed past the waiting area.

Due to patient privacy requirements, any information about a patient’s diagnosis or treatment must come directly from the patient to concerned family members or friends. No information will be given out by the switchboard operator or nursing personnel. To reach a patient by phone, dial 479-968-2841 and ask for the patient by name.

Lobby Areas

Specially designated lounge areas for visitors on each patient floor and on the main floor in the lobby. Specific waiting areas have been designated for families of patients in the critical care units, the Emergency Department, and Surgery.
