Huntington Hospital Visiting Hours
Normal visiting hours for the Hospital are from 11:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. However, in the Maternity Area only, there is Nesting Time from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. During Nesting Time (also called the Golden Hour) no visitors are allowed except the patient's designated support person (spouse, partner or significant other). This time is for the parents of the newborn to bond with their baby, to rest, to breastfeed, whatever they need to
All visitors must obtain a visitor’s pass. These can be obtained at the information desk in the main lobby and also in the Emergency Room waiting area after 8 p.m. No more than 3 visitors are allowed in a patient’s room at a time, and one of them has to be the spouse or designated support person. Passes have to be returned when the visitor leaves.
One adult family member or designated significant other may stay overnight in the room with the new mother. In fact, we encourage this!
