Patients & Visitors

Visiting Hours

IVCH welcomes the friends and family members of our patients. Here is what you need to know about visiting an IVCH patient:

Medical/Surgical Units (2 South and 3 South)

  • Visitors welcome anytime.

Intensive Care Unit

  • Call ahead, 815.780.3558, to determine if the patient you wish to visit can receive visitors.
  • If you're at IVCH, dial 3588 on the phone in the hallway outside ICU.

Obstetrics Unit

Visiting hours for OB patients are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Visiting hours may be limited depending upon the patient's condition, hygiene needs, and breastfeeding schedule. An adult must accompany siblings of the newborn while they are visiting the hospital, and visitors must wash hands prior to having contact with the infant. Family and visitors are expected to abide by conduct that is supportive of the hospital environment.

Day Surgery

  • No restrictions
