Hospital Visiting Hours - St. Joseph - Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare

Skip to Content

Visiting Hours

Recommended visiting hours are 11 am - 8 pm daily.

We encourage you to visit family and friends who are hospitalized at Wheaton Franciscan – St. Joseph Campus. In many cases, having company can be beneficial to the healing process and make a patient’s stay more comfortable.

Please keep the following in mind as you visit:

  • Honor the suggested visiting hours to give all patients the quiet environment and rest they need for a speedy recovery.
  • If you arrive after 8 pm, please enter through our Emergency Department. You will be given a security bracelet that you must wear at all times.
  • Visiting may be limited due to the patient’s condition and physician’s recommendation. It’s important to allow adequate quiet time and rest for a quick recovery. Visitors should always respect the patient’s wishes while maintaining confidentiality, privacy and security to others. Patients may decide who can and cannot visit. If you have concerns, please talk with the patient’s caregiver.
  • To provide exceptional and compassionate health care, we ask that you do not visit if you have signs of an upper respiratory infection such as fever, runny nose, sore throat or cough.
  • If you are here to visit a new mom and newborn, we encourage visiting during normal visiting hours of 8 am to 8 pm.
