Visiting the Hospital

LHSC continues to advise visitors who feel unwell, but do not require care to avoid coming to the hospital. Feeling unwell includes, but is not limited to, respiratory issues (cough, runny nose, fever, shortness of breath) or gastrointestinal issues (vomit, diarrhea, nausea).

At this time, all family caregiver presence and other visitation requests must be pre-approved. Please contact the medical team for a request to visit or accompany a patient. Approvals cannot be granted at the screening desk when you arrive at the hospital. Please see more information of what is expected for visitors at the Visitor Policy section below.
