We know that visitors are important to your well-being and recovery. Your family and friends are welcome to visit you on the general units from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

If you do not want visitors or telephone calls, please call a patient representative at 215-955-7777 (or 5-7777 from inside the Hospital).

  • Except for brothers and sisters visiting newborn siblings, children under 13 years old may not visit on patient floors; they may wait in the lobby or the Atrium Cafeteria. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Special visiting privileges for children should be arranged in advance with your nurse.
  • To avoid overcrowding, no more than one visitor is allowed in a patient room at a time.
  • Visiting hours are limited in the intensive care units because of the special care required for these patients.

To protect the health and well-being of our patients, visitors, employees, students, and volunteers, Jefferson is a smoke-free campus. Smoking is not permitted in all Jefferson buildings and within 50’ of any entryway to or exit from Jefferson buildings, and within 50’ of driveways, canopies, archways and plazas.
