When no health issue prevents us, we offer open visiting hours to patients on Medical/Surgical floors, Telemetry, ICU, CCU and the Transitional Care Unit. All visitors to patients on these units enjoy full and equal visitation privileges consistent with the patient’s preference. Mather Hospital is committed to providing an environment that recognizes the uniqueness of each individual, with respect to race, gender, age, cultural background, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, religion and/or any other types of diversity.
