Health Sciences North has expanded its visiting hours from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m daily.
Only two visitors per patient are permitted at one time.
Children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult and supervised at all times.
Visiting of patients in the Emergency Department (ED) is determined by ED staff.
Please check with the nursing staff to discuss visiting options for special care areas (such as Labour and Delivery and Post Partum Unit). These visiting guidelines are intended to provide our patients the time that they need to heal and to help us reduce the risk of infection.

Support a Scent-Free Environment
To protect the health and well-being of our patients, visitors and staff, Health Sciences North kindly requests that you do not wear or use any scented products while on hospital property.
Scented products linger long after an individual leaves an area. This can cause allergic reactions and respiratory distress for patients, visitors and staff.
Health Sciences North has fully contained bicycle lockers for use by staff, physicians, volunteers, or visitors. They are located at the front of the hospital just outside the main entrance, as well as outside the South Tower entrance and Northeast Cancer Centre rooftop. Anyone wishing to utilize a locker may do so but must supply their own lock and must remove their lock at the end of the visit so that others may access the units. The lockers are built to have the bike backed into the unit.
