Visiting Hours and Guidelines

While community spread of COVID-19 is still occurring, we will continue to restrict who can visit our hospitals and who can accompany patients to appointments. We don’t like limiting visitors, but it helps reduce the risk of exposure to patients and staff. Please click below for more information.

Yale New Haven Hospital

Inpatient: Visitors must arrive between 2-7pm and must leave by 8pm daily, for patients on non-COVID units. Patients are allowed one visitor per day during visiting hours, with no changing of visitors on the same day allowed. Visitors are encouraged to limit their visit to two hours.

Outpatient: Patients coming for an outpatient medical office visit or to an ambulatory area, may now be accompanied by one individual throughout their visit to the extent possible. In certain areas where space is not conducive for visitors the leadership team will help seek an alternate waiting area when possible.

Friends and relatives may call the hospital's patient information line at 203-688-4177 at any time to find out a patient's room and telephone number.
