For Visitors

Visiting Guidelines

We understand that it is important for our patients to visit with family and friends while in the hospital, and we want to make this as convenient as possible, so we do not have strict visiting hours.

However, we do ask that you are courteous of other patients, and recognize that there are times when the nursing staff may need to ask you to leave the room.

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 & Progressive Care Units: Family only, or by arrangement with nursing staff.


Patient and visitor parking lots at Lakes Region General Hospital and Franklin Regional Hospital are located in front of the main buildings. Handicapped parking spaces are located close to the front entrances. For your convenience shuttle services are available.

If your vehicle must remain in any of our parking lots overnight, please ask your nurse to notify our Security Department.
