Patient Guides

Visiting Hours:

Visiting hours are 8:00am to 8:30pm at Magruder.

Magruder welcomes friends and family to visit their loved ones during their hospitalization, but encourages discretion with infants and young children due to potential noise and exposure issues. 

All visitors will need to stay in patient rooms and should not linger in the hallway in order to protect the privacy of other patients. 

Visitors may be asked to leave the room while patient care is being done, and staff will notify visitors where they can relocate to during that time. 

Tobacco Free Campus Policy

Taking the initiative to safeguard the health of patients, visitors and staff, and to keep our breathing air clean, Magruder Hospital is a tobacco-free campus, and tobacco use of any kind, natural or synthetic, is prohibited on the grounds of all Magruder facilities, inside and out.
