Having visitors at EastPointe is important for many of our patients. It is a way to maintain connection with friends and family. It also reassures them of the patient’s health and safety. Visitation rules in a psychiatric hospital are different from those in a medical hospital for therapeutic reasons. Visiting hours are limited so patients may focus on their treatment. Limiting visiting hours also helps to maintain safety and structure on the hospital units.
Family members and friends may call EastPointe’s main phone number at (251) 378-6500 to schedule a visit and should be prepared to provide the patient’s medical record number during the call.
- 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for 30 minutes
- Children under 12 years of age are not permitted to visit
Visits are limited to three visitors per patient unless approval has been granted for more visitors in order to have a family meeting or therapy session. Visitors should leave purses in their vehicles. Food may be brought to patients for their consumption during the visit. No food or snacks brought from outside the hospital may be taken onto the unit.
