Family Birthplace: Fathers and family may visit at any time, and fathers or partners are also welcome to stay overnight.

Pediatric patients: One parent may stay overnight in their child 's room after making arrangements with nursing staff.

Intensive Care Unit: Family only, or by arrangement with nursing staff.
