Visiting a Patient

We believe children heal better emotionally and physically when they have their families nearby. Parents or legal guardians are welcome to visit anytime. Some of our units have special considerations during nursing shift changes. Your child’s nurses will let you know if this applies to you. Regular hours for other visitors are from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

For more information, please contact the Children's Health Line between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., Monday through Friday at (757) 668-7500 or 1-800-395-2453. Or you can e-mail us anytime at and we'll respond to your inquiry no later than the next business day.
