The purpose of our visitation policy is to define and set expectations regarding persons visiting hospitalized patients and to recognize our commitment to provide visitation in accordance with our non-discrimination policy, which provides access without regard to race, color, sex, national origin, disability, age, religion, marital status, citizenship, gender expression, sexual orientation, and/or other legally protected classification. It also provides a mechanism to issue identification to authorized individuals visiting a patient.
