We’ve planned for family and friends, too

Tanner understands the importance of family and loved ones at this most meaningful time, so the Maternity Center has been especially designed for the convenience of family members, complete with comfortable waiting areas and telephones. And if you’d like to have a few loved ones especially close by at the time of baby’s birth, each labor and delivery suite is equipped with a private waiting room.

Visitors are welcome

Your family and friends are welcome to visit you and your new baby in the maternity center. Visiting hours for those other than the primary support person are from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Likewise, your new baby's brothers and sisters are encouraged to be part of their family's growth at this special time; however, Tanner asks visitors to refrain from bringing children who are younger than 12 years of age to the maternity center.

Maintaining a safe environment for your baby means providing protection against germs and viruses than can be detrimental to pregnant women and new babies, both of whom have compromised immune systems that make them more susceptible.

Loved ones who have respiratory infections or a fever should not visit the maternity center. To ensure your safety as well as the safety of other patients, your patient care team also may place restrictions on visitation as deemed medically necessary. The safety and health of you and newborn are paramount.
