Visiting Hours and Policies

Restricted Visiting Hours effective February 8, 2017

New visiting hour restrictions are in effect for all Baystate Health hospitals in order to protect patients from the flu.

  • No more than two visitors at a time are recommended per patient.
  • No visitors under 14 years old will be permitted at Baystate health hospitals
  • Visitors who have been exposed to the flu at home, or who have symptoms of the flu, are asked to refrain from visiting patients in Baystate Health hospitals.

Visitor Access to Patients in the Wesson Women and Infants’ Unit at Baystate Medical Center

At Baystate Medical Center, we have a secured entrance to our birthing units. This means that your visitors will use a telephone outside the entrance to speak to one of our staff before we open the door.

Visiting hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. but there may be times when we have to restrict visitors, especially during the flu season.
