Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania

Visiting hospitalized loved ones is a way of showing support and offering encouragement. Patients should discuss with family and friends when they would like to receive visitors and who should visit.

General and Maternity Visiting Hours

Your nurse and providers will work with you to plan for visitors to ensure that both your emotional and physical safety needs are met.

  • Monday to Sunday: 6 am to 10 pm

Visitor Passes

Visitor passes are required after 6 pm on weekdays and all day on the weekend and holidays. Visitor passes are available at the information desks in the Ravdin and Silverstein buildings. Passes should be visible at all times and readily available for presentation upon request.

Family Waiting Areas

Visitor lounges are located in the following areas:

  • 2nd floor of Dulles (surgical family waiting area)
  • Main lobby at the Ravdin entrance
  • All nursing units

During certain hours, a volunteer hostess is on duty in the surgical family waiting area to keep family members informed about the progress of surgery. At other times nursing staff fill this need.
