Please note due to the COVID-19 pandemic, visiting practices at Providence Care Hospital have changed. Click here for the latest information.
At Providence Care Hospital (PCH) we welcome and recognize the importance of family and friends to patients and clients. Visitors are encouraged to come and spend time with loved ones, as they have an important role in health care delivery and wellness.
PCH does not have hospital-wide visiting hours. Family and friends are asked to speak with the patient and the care team if you have questions about best times for visits. Please note that the main entrance is open (unlocked) between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. After 10 p.m. the doors are locked to ensure the safety and security of patients and staff through the night. Visitors can enter the hospital by using the intercom at the main entrance. A Protection Services officer will respond to open the doors.
Pets (cats or dogs) must be over one year old, free of skin lesions, diarrhea, fleas/ticks and other parasites, must be well tempered, house trained, obedient and kept on a leash at all times.
Prior to any pet visit, the Program Manager should be notified, and the owner needs to provide proof that vaccinations are up-to-date. Visits can occur in the patient/client’s room, not in common areas (e.g. Dining Room).
