Intensive Care Unit (ICU):
St. Mary’s encourages family members and/or significant others to visit patients in the ICU. Visitors are very important to recovery, bringing a sense of familiarity that cannot be provided by our staff. Visiting is usually limited to two visitors at a time. At times, a staff member may ask guests to wait in the ICU Waiting Room while the patient rests, receives medication or a treatment. To allow our nursing staff to change shifts, visitors are permitted between 8:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.

Patients who are critically ill are very susceptible to all types of illnesses. Therefore, children under 12 years of age are not permitted, as children may have colds or infections that could be transmitted to patients. People who are sick or who live with someone with a recent infectious illness are asked not visit the ICU. The ICU Waiting Room is on the 3rd floor, outside of the ICU. Friends and family members can be reached in the ICU Waiting Room at 580-233-6100 ext. 9344 or ext. 9330. Condition reports on ICU patients are available upon confirmation of a password.

Post Cardiac Care Unit (PCCU):
This unit is open from 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. Visitors are asked to use their best judgment regarding time and length of visit.

Rehabilitation Institute:
Due to daily therapy sessions, guests are asked to visit on weekend afternoons or weekday evenings between 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Emergency Department:
No restricted visiting hours. Limit of two visitors in the patient’s room at any time.

Visitors of patients in isolation should check at the Nurse Station before entering the patient’s room.
