Effective immediately, visiting hours for The Birthplace at Faxton St. Luke’s Healthcare (FSLH) have changed. The visiting hours have been adjusted to help promote a more family friendly environment and to align the quiet time with the rest of the hospital. The new visiting hours are as follows:

Maternity Unit

Newborn’s father, or a designee, may stay with mom at all times if the mother is in private room or has no roommate. If the patient is in a shared room the hours are 5:30am to 10pm.

Open visiting hours are 10am to 2pm and 4pm to 8pm.

Quiet Time is observed from 2pm to 4pm, the same as the rest of the hospital. No visitors (except for the father or designee) during this time.

Labor and Delivery
Visitors are limited to two per patient, must be designated by the mother and are not interchangeable with other individuals. They must be over the age of 16 while patient in is labor and throughout delivery.
