Pennsylvania Hospital

Visiting hospitalized loved ones is a way of showing support and offering encouragement. At Pennsylvania Hospital, visiting hours are open and flexible. Patients should discuss with family and friends when they would like to receive visitors and who should visit.

All visitors must enter through the main entrance of the hospital on 8th and Spruce Streets and will be required to wear a visitor's badge, which can be picked up at the Welcome Desk located at the main entrance. A photo ID is required to receive a badge. Visitor passes should be visible at all times and returned to the Welcome Center upon leaving the hospital.
