Visitor Hours & Guidelines
At San Joaquin Community Hospital, we understand the vital role family and friends play in the healing process. For the convenience of our patients’ visitors, we have spacious waiting areas, a public cafeteria and vending machines that can be accessed 24 hours a day. To maximize the safety of our staff, patients and guests, please ensure that you are free of illness before visiting your family member or friend in the hospital.
To find out where a patient is staying before you arrive at the hospital, contact an operator at 661-395-3000.
Normal visiting hours are 7 a.m. – 8 p.m. After entering the hospital, please check in with the front desk for further instructions. Please keep in mind that you may be asked to step out of a patient’s room during specific types of treatment.
Visitors are permitted after 8 p.m., however, if you come after hours, please enter through the Emergency Department entrance and check in with security before proceeding.
Adult visitors are allowed to stay in patient rooms overnight. Many of our rooms include a pull-out chair that may be used as a bed.
Children are permitted to visit patients in the hospital under the supervision of an adult. Depending on a patient’s condition, our medical staff may determine that children are not permitted to visit at a particular time.
