Visitors
Thank you for visiting one or perhaps more of our patients. We believe that visitors are of great importance and in a lot of cases have a positive effect on the healing process of the patient. This part of the site is dedicated to informing you about a visit to the A.M. Edwards Medical Center.

Visiting Hours & Policy
Our daily visiting hours are between 11 am – 1 pm & 4 pm – 8 pm
In order for our patients to have sufficient rest during their stay, and to have a speedy recovery, please abide by our visiting hours.

We would also seek your cooperation in abiding by the following:
Please refrain from visiting patients if you are not feeling well, e.g if you have symptoms such as fever, cough or cold.
Please wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand rub before and after visiting patients in the hospital.
Sometimes our medical staff requires visitors to come back at a different time, due to the condition of the patient or medical procedure, even during visiting hours. We ask you to understand and cooperate when this occurs.
Every patient is entitled to one care contact. The care contact is able to visit the patient 24/7. The care contact will be able to inform all friends and relatives inquiring about the patient and coordinate a visiting schedule suitable for the patient and the medical center.
