Mather Hospital strives to make all hospital stays as pleasant as possible for our patients and we understand how therapeutic visits from family and friends can be. In addition to our general unit visiting hours, when no other health issue prevents it, you may be able to make special arrangements through your nurse.

Patients have the right to choose who can and cannot visit, and may select their priority support persons if visitation is restricted. Priority visitors may include any support persons chosen by the patient.

Mather Hospital is a smoke-free, tobacco-free campus.

For our patients’ benefit, we ask that you respect the following guidelines:

  • Please do not come to the hospital if you have a cold, a rash, a fever, the flu or other communicable disease.
  • All visitors should wash their hands before entering and after leaving a patient’s room.
  • Please set your cell phone or other electronic device to vibrate or turn it off while in the hospital.
  • The use of any camera, audio or video recording is prohibited.
  • No latex balloons are allowed anywhere in the hospital as many people are severely allergic to latex. Please check with individual unit nurses for any restrictions on flowers, outside food or wearing perfumes or colognes.
  • Smoking is prohibited on the Mather Hospital campus.
