Visiting Hours, Parking, and Amenities at Carle Richland Memorial Hospital
Visiting HoursHospital visiting hours are generally from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., however we want to promote healing and family involvement at any hour if the patient desires it. Please speak with your loved one’s nurse to discuss their needs and when it would be appropriate to visit.
To encourage healing, we also participate in hospital quiet hours from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. During this time, the lights are dimmed and disruptions limited to allow our patients the rest they need to heal. Please consider this while visiting.
