At North Shore University Hospital

Visitors are allowed from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. Only four visitors are allowed at the bedside at any one time. The only children allowed on the unit will be siblings of the newborn. These children will be given either a pink or blue band designating them as the big sister or big brother.

At LIJ Medical Center

The Mother Baby/Postpartum Unit welcomes your extended family and friends to the unit from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Due to limited space in the patient rooms we ask that no more than four visitors be at the bedside at any one time.

Please inform your family and friends of these visitation policies.
