Visiting Hours

Beginning July 10, 2019, South Bruce Grey Health Centre's family presence policy allows patients to identify their Partners in Care to support them continuously throughout their hospital stay.

 

Families and other partners in care, as identified by the patient, are welcome at the patient’s bedside 24 hours a day. All other visitors will be welcome between 9:00 AM and 9:00 PM.

 

Quiet hours will be observed after 9:00 PM to help patients get the rest they need.

 

During Quiet Hours, please help support a restful environment for our patients by lowering voices, dimming lights and turning down cell phones.
