  • Tours are led by trained volunteer tour guides and identified hospital employees.
  • Please arrive approximately five minutes prior to your tour time. This allows for bathroom breaks and group organization prior to the start of the tour.
  • Please notify us if you are running late. A late arrival may result in a shortened tour due to the number of other groups scheduled to tour the Hospital.

  • All tour participants must be screened for good health upon arrival.
  • All tour participants will receive and must  read and sign the Confidentiality Agreement, to be submitted to the tour guide(s) at the start of the tour.
  • Due to patient privacy regulations, flash photography, cell phone usage and video recording will not be permitted in patient care areas, unless prior arrangements have been made.
