Visitors

Visits from family and friends can be an important part of your hospital stay. But, please remember, you are here to rest and get well. Too many visitors and lengthy visits can slow your recovery. Please ask your visitors to follow these guidelines:
  • Keep visits short.
  • Visitors should leave quietly and promptly at the end of visiting hours.
  • No smoking is permitted anywhere on the medical center campus.
No latex balloons are permitted.

Waiting Areas

Waiting areas with nearby rest rooms and courtesy phones are located on levels two, three, four and five directly across from the elevators. There is also a waiting area adjacent to the Intensive Care Unit on level three. On the first floor, waiting areas can be found in the front lobby and near the emergency department entrance. All waiting areas are equipped with wireless internet technology.

Internet Access & Free Wi-Fi Spot

Wireless internet access is available in patient rooms and waiting areas, free of cost. To access our wireless network, select the WiFi-CMH-Guest Network and accept the terms and conditions.

Parking and Transportation

Parking for patients and visitors is located in front of the medical Center and adjacent to the emergency entrance. Please observe the designated spaces for handicapped persons. If you require handicapped parking, please make sure that your handicapped tag or pass is clearly visible.

Free valet parking is available from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Medical Office Building entrance. Patients and visitors may also take advantage of our courtesy shuttle. Volunteers circulate the surrounding parking lots in a covered shuttle and provide those who need transport with a lift to their destination. The shuttle's hours are 8:30 a.m. - 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. You can also arrange for a pick up by calling 410-610-8100.

Bus schedules are available at all information desks.

Visiting Hours

Visits from family and friends can be an important part of your hospital stay. But, please remember that you are here to rest and get well. Too many visitors can be tiring and slow your recovery. We encourage you to choose a support person who can be with you and can help exercise your visitation rights in the event you are unable to do so.
