Visit Kansas City

Visits from relatives and friends can play an important part in a patient's recovery; however a visit can be tiring when one is not feeling well.

TMC asks that most visits be kept short.  In most cases, a patient's time is scheduled for receiving care and treatment.  Since this is especially true in the mornings, we suggest any planned morning visitor call ahead to make sure you are in your room and that there are no planned procedures.

Visiting Hours

  • General visiting hours are from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • The Maternity Unit follows general visiting hours. However, after-hours births do allow for visitors.  After 8:30 p.m., all visitors must check in at the Security booth, located just outside the Emergency Department.
  • Mothers and fathers can visit an infant in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at any time.  Visitors must check in at the front desk of the NICU and the Maternity Unit 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • Critical Care Units have open visiting with some restrictions. Always check with the nurse.
  • Behavioral Health Units visiting hours are from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

We ask that visitors to TMC respect the following guidelines:

  • Only two visitors per patient at a time.
  • Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Children should not be left unattended anywhere in the hospital.
  • Visitors should use the main entrance (on Holmes) to enter and exit from the hospital.
  • Visitors are asked not to sit or lay on the patient's bed and to not use the patient's restroom.
  • Visitors with colds, flu or other contagious diseases are asked not to visit patients.
  • Visitors and patients should be respectful of other patients and keep noise to a minimum.
  • Visitors must check with the nursing unit before bringing food or gifts to the patient's room.  Patients may be on special diets and certain foods are restricted.
  • Visitors are asked to not visit other patients on the unit, touch equipment, or change the position of a patient or their bed without consulting the nurse.
  • No visitors will be allowed in the room while treatment, doctor or nursing care is in progress.  Your visitor(s) may be asked to step outside your room during these times.
  • Visitors should wash their hands upon entering and leaving the patient room.
