Visitor Information

We welcome our visitors - You are important in the healing process

The University of Michigan Health System welcomes loved ones to visit patients. We know how important it is for patient healing to have family and friends with patients while in the hospital, and we know that informed family members lead to better outcomes for patients.

“Family” members are welcome at your bedside 24 hours a day, and visitors are welcome during regular visiting hours between 9 am to 9 pm. (Your “Family” is defined by you, not defined by our hospital staff, and “family” members do not need to be legally related to you.)
