COVID-19 Visitation Restrictions

Restrictions to patient visitors at University of Pennsylvania Hospital are currently in effect.

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 Badges

We encourage our patients to identify a support person who may choose to stay overnight. If you have been identified as a patient’s support person, you will be provided a badge allowing you to be in the hospital outside of normal visiting hours. Badges must be worn between the house of 10 pm and 6 am.

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.
