Memorial Hermann believes strongly in including patients’ loved ones in the healing process. When friends, family members, and caregivers work together, patients often experience a higher level of safe, quality care that can lead to a faster recovery process and a shorter hospital stay.
Visitors are designated by the patient and may include, but are not limited to, a spouse, a domestic partner, another family member, or a friend. The patient has the right to withdraw or deny such consent at any time. Memorial Hermann will not restrict, limit, or otherwise deny visitation privileges on the basis of age, race, ethnicity, color, national origin, religion, culture, language, physical or mental disability, socioeconomic status, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity or expression.
Visitation Guidelines and Hours
While each unit may have specific visitation guidelines appropriate for its level of care, hospital visitation guidelines are as follows:
- To provide an optimum healing environment for our patients, hospital visiting hours are from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. After 9 p.m., hospital entry may be limited:
Memorial Hermann Tower – Open 24 hours
East Tower – After 9 p.m., check in at the Emergency Room
- For the safety of our patients, no sick visitors are allowed at any time.
- Children under the age of 16 are not permitted in patient care areas, waiting rooms or lobbies without adult supervision.
- Only one adult visitor may spend the night in a general patient room, and children under the age of 18 are not permitted to stay overnight.
- In critical care units/ICUs, visitors are not allowed between 6:30 and 7:30 a.m. and from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. to accommodate nursing transition of care. Visitors under the age of 14 are not permitted. No more than two visitors may enter at one time.
