Visiting Hours

NYC Health + Hospitals/Lincoln promotes and supports a patient- and family-centered care environment. Families and other partners in care are welcome 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, excluding our Inpatient Behavioral Health Units (see below for visitation hours).

Patients have the right to designate any visitors, including a spouse, domestic partner, a same-sex domestic partner, another family member, or a friend. Lincoln does not restrict, limit, or otherwise deny visitation privileges based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability. Patients may withdraw or deny consent to visitation to anyone at any time.

All guests are required to obtain a pass to visit a patient. Once approved, you are issued a dated pass that must be worn at all times.

Children under 13 are not allowed in patient-care areas without prior approval. Speak with the head nurse of the unit before bringing children to a patient-care area. Please ask family and friends who are ill not to visit until they are well.

If you have questions about the visiting policies or hours, please speak with the nurses on the unit.
