Visiting Hours

Patient care is our first priority. The Henry Ford Hospital team promotes a healing environment where patients may recover and rest in a quiet and safe environment. Visiting hours have been established and there will be times when visitors will be asked to step out of a patient's room or end their visit early.

Visitor hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

We ask that only two individuals visit a patient at one time. One overnight visitor may be permitted in a private patient room and one in a semi-private room if the visitor is the same gender as the patient. However, the nursing staff must grant permission for any overnight visitors. Overnight visitors must remain in the patient's room.

Exceptions for visitations are made at the discretion of the healthcare team for critically ill, emergency surgery, laboring, minor mentally challenged and patients with a language barrier. The Neonatal Intensive Care unit has a 24 hour per day, seven day per week visitation for parents. We ask that all visitors check in at the information desk in the main lobby of Henry Ford Hospital.

Visitor check-in after 8 p.m.

Visitors arriving after 8 p.m. must check in and register with Henry Ford Hospital Security, located in the West Pavilion lobby near the 24-hour entrance on West Grand Boulevard. All waiting rooms and public areas are closed after 8 p.m.

Visitors will be screened and the nursing unit contacted prior to a visitor going to a unit or area. Visitors will be given a picture ID which MUST be worn at all times and visible while in the hospital. The ID badge will display the current date and should be renewed daily. Any visitor not visibly wearing their ID badge may be asked to return to Security or removed from the facility.

Henry Ford Health System does not exclude, deny benefits to, restrict visitation, or otherwise discriminate against any person on the ground of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, height, weight, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or on the basis of disability or age in admission to, participation in, or receipt of the services and benefits under any of its programs and activities.
