  • Mount Sinai West’s Visiting Hours

    Visits by a family member, significant other, friend, or other designated support person can play a vital role in patients’ well-being and serve as a great source of comfort and support. Patients have the right to decide who may or may not visit without regard to race, color, national origin, language, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, or socioeconomic status.


    Generally, Mount Sinai West encourages that visits take place between 9 am to 9 pm daily; however, staff will work to accommodate an individual’s visitation needs while ensuring that the care and safety of the individual patient and fellow patients are not compromised. Clinical staff may determine that visitation may not be appropriate given the patient’s medical condition or that visitation should be restricted in certain circumstances.

    Clinical staff or Security may restrict or limit visitors when:
    visitors exhibit signs or symptoms of infection (e.g. coughing, runny nose, fever, chills, etc.); visitors interfere with the care of other patients; the patient or patient’s roommate(s) need(s) rest or privacy; the hospital is aware that there is an existing court order restricting contact between the patient and the visitor; visitors engage in disruptive, threatening, or violent behavior; the patient is undergoing care interventions.

    Visiting hours for specific units may vary. To inquire about hours, call the Mount Sinai West switchboard, 212.523.4000, to be connected to the particular unit.
    Visitor presence and support is important. We thank you for helping us maintain a healing environment for our patients.
