Effective March 6, 2023

Geisinger St. Luke’s recognizes the important role your family and friends play in your recovery. Their love and support will be instrumental in your return to wellness. We do support and accommodate flexible patient visitation, but we also recognize that proper rest is essential to your healing.

Visitors are permitted 24 hours-a-day. However, we do encourage visitation during daytime hours to ensure you have adequate time to rest in the evening and night. Patient care areas that provide specialized care (Maternity, Pediatrics, Behavioral Health and Critical Care as examples) may have specific visiting times and recommendations which will be discussed at the time of admission.

We have developed the following guidelines and recommendations to help you and your loved ones in establishing a personalized plan to balance visitation and rest. As always, your health care team is available to assist you in establishing and managing your visitation plan

While visiting your loved one, please observe these guidelines:


End of Life

  • Visitation can occur at any time, but it is preferred if the following times are avoided: 6:45 am - 7:15 am and 6:45 pm - 7:15 pm.
  • Visitors may not congregate in common or waiting room areas while waiting to visit.

Patients put their trust in us when they choose to seek care with Geisinger St. Luke’s. As such, we have developed a policy that reflects our longstanding commitment to providing a safe work environment free from threat or harm for all of our providers, employees and volunteers. This policy details our Network’s expectations regarding appropriate communication and behavior for all who use our services. As our patients and guests of Geisinger St. Luke’s, we ask you to join us in creating a safe environment for all. View Code of Conduct. Your cooperation in observing these guidelines is appreciated and will help us provide the safe environment that is necessary to continue to welcome visitors to our facilities.
