Visitor Information

The support of family and friends is an important part of a patient’s recovery. McKenzie Health System welcomes your visit and asks that you follow the guidelines below for visitors.

  • Rest is an essential part of our patients’ treatment. Please limit the number of visitors to two (2) in a room at one time.
  • For the comfort and privacy of the patient, we may require visitors to leave the room at the time of treatment or nursing care.
