If media is anticipated, we need to know in advance, so we can plan with our Communications Department. Photographs of patients/residents/tenants must have prior written consent from him/her and if a minor, consent from the parent or guardian.


General Guidelines

• For the well being of our patients/residents/tenants, we ask that tour guests are healthy. During flu season (approx. Oct-Apr) proof of flu vaccination/masks may be required in some areas.

• All visitors younger than 18 must be chaperoned by an adult.

• Visitors should wear appropriate attire. Please do not wear tank tops, low cut shirts, short shorts or logo t-shirts with inappropriate slogans. All offensive tattoos must be covered.
