Visiting the Heart & Vascular Institute

Visitor badges

All visitors of the Heart & Vascular Institute must check in on the 2nd floor at Elevator B using a valid, government-issued identification card. Badges will indicate the visiting period for which they are valid, and must be worn on the outermost layer of clothing in a manner easily read by our staff.

Overnight Accommodations

One designated support person may stay in the patient’s room overnight. Each room is equipped with a sofa that converts to a comfortable bed. We do not provide any additional overnight accommodations.
