Visitors are welcome, but because the emergency department can oftentimes be fast-paced, it is best if family members and friends wait in the reception area while their loved one is being treated. The waiting room is newly remodeled and located just inside the west entrance, near the Admitting Department. Our admitting and nursing staff will do their best to accommodate for you and your family.
