Butler Hospital Visitation Restrictions

Visitation restrictions at Butler Hospital:


In-person visitation on our adolescent treatment unit as well as on our adult inpatient units is not permitted in any location at this time due to the group setting environment and ongoing community transmission of COVID. Butler Hospital encourages patient family visitation through privacy-protected virtual technology, such as Zoom for Healthcare, which may be requested by contacting the patient or staff on the inpatient unit.

Emergency Services  

One accompanying person is allowed for an adolescent patient.  


Visitors are not allowed in Ambulatory settings unless prior arrangements are made, such as for family meetings.

  • Visiting hours are Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday from 5:00 – 7:00 pm.
  • • A patient may have a visitor from 5:00 – 5:50 pm or 6:00 – 6:50 pm. This will allow us to keep on schedule.
  • Visits are scheduled by our treatment teams at the patient’s request—we want all patients to have a chance to schedule a visit during their stay.

  • All visitors will be screened for COVID symptoms in the Visitor Registration Center (VRC) and will be required to wear masks for the entirety of the visit.

The Education groups will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 followed by a visit until 7 pm. There is no visiting on Sundays. One visitor per patient will be allowed due to space considerations.
