Visitor Guidelines

Whether you’re here for an hour or for the day, we know that friends and family members can be an important part of the healing process. Take a look through our visitor guidelines and information so you can experience an enjoyable and productive visit with your loved one.

Visiting Hours

St. Joseph Hospital and Emergency Department are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We know that care and support doesn’t fall inside a neat schedule. That’s why St. Joseph Hospital has adopted a patient and family-centered care model with traditional visiting hours from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and quiet hours beginning at 8 p.m. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are currently allowing up to 2 visitors for 30 minutes each per day.

Please note that visitors arriving after 7 p.m. are requested to enter through the Emergency Department doors and check-in. Visitors to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) are at the discretion of the nurse. We recommend calling ahead to make sure you can visit.

To inquire about a patient’s room or telephone number, please call the hospital’s operator at (603) 882-3000, ext. 0.

Dining on Campus

Sometimes, the normalcy of a family meal is enough to lift a patient’s spirits. Our cafeteria is located on the ground floor of the South Building and is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Additionally, the St. Joe’s Cafe is located in the atrium of the hospital near the main entrance and is open Monday through Friday, 6:30 a.m. to noon.


ATMs are located in the first-floor atrium of the new ambulatory care building, adjacent to the Gift Shop and Retail Pharmacy.


There are many nearby lodging options for family and friends during your hospital stay. Our friendly Patient Service Representatives at the Main Information Desk will be happy to provide you with a list.

Gift Shop

The Gift Shop is the perfect place to find a book, card, flowers, snacks or anything else you might need. Located in the atrium of the hospital, the shop is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. to noon.

A Tobacco Free Campus

St. Joseph Hospital is proud to be a tobacco-free environment as all forms of use, including smoking and vaping, are prohibited on our campus. If you are preparing for a hospital stay and have concerns regarding how you will respond physically or emotionally to our tobacco-free campus policy, we encourage you to speak with your health care provider. There are solutions that will help you control your cravings and reduce your dependence on tobacco products.
