Visitation at Lehigh Valley Hospital–Hazleton
Due to the increasing number of flu cases and respiratory illnesses, LVH–Hazleton is asking those who are experiencing flu-like symptoms and young children to avoid visiting patients in the hospital during flu season.
While the presence of family and friends is important to the recuperation and healing process, we ask that all visitors abide by the visiting hours at LVH–Hazleton and that visitors are limited to two at a time. Visiting hours are as follows:
Medical/surgical floors – Daily 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Intensive care unit – Visiting is limited to 30 minutes and is for immediate family only. Visiting times are daily 12:30 p.m.-1 p.m., 2:30 p.m.-3 p.m., 5:30 p.m.-6 p.m., 7:30 p.m.-8 p.m.
Pediatrics – Daily 8 p.m. to 8 p.m. If family members would like to stay after 8 p.m. or arrange an overnight stay with a patient, please consult the floor nurse.
Maternity – Daily 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Gunderson Center for Inpatient Rehabilitation – Daily 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
All LVHN facilities – including all buildings, parking lots and grounds – are completely smoke-free. This policy not only applies to all visitors, but all patients and hospital staff.
Any visitor smoking on the hospital property will be asked to refrain from doing so. We appreciate your cooperation.
Our aim, by becoming a smoke-free organization, is to protect and improve the health of our staff, patients and visitors, both smokers and non-smokers.
