Visiting the Hospital

LHSC continues to advise all visitors including patients with appointments 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).

If you are patient with an appointment or surgery, please visit the service changes page to learn about changes in clinical services. Your care team will reach out directly if they need to make changes to your scheduled appointments or procedures.

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.

Please help us keep LHSC safe.
