Visiting Hours and Information

We're taking extra precautions to keep our patients, teammates and community safe. Roper St. Francis Healthcare is joining all area hospitals in implementing a NO VISITOR policy to prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19, in a collaborative effort to keep our patients and staff safe.

Exceptions to this policy will be made for extenuating clinical circumstances. We appreciate your support and understanding during this time. 

For our pregnant patients, we are allowing one visitor per patient who will stay as the support person for the duration of their hospital stay.

Gift Shop and Stores

A variety of items are available including snacks, candies, toiletries, books, magazines, cards, fresh flowers, balloons, assorted gifts and a full line of specialty items for our newborn patients, mothers and cancer patients.  Flowers may be ordered for delivery to patient rooms.

Religious Services

A chapel is available to you and your family 24 hours a day on the first floor. Special prayer gatherings and worship services, usually led by the hospital chaplain, are held in the chapel at various times throughout the week.

For Roman Catholics, Eucharistic ministers regularly bring communion to patients who have indicated that they are Catholic upon admission to the hospital.

For Jewish patients, Sabbath candles are available upon request.

Contact the Pastoral Care Office for hospital-specific service times and/or for your religious and spiritual needs by dialing "0" for the operator.

Vending Machines

Vending machines are located on the first floor of the East Medical office building - to the left of the grand staircase in the Mall.

Smoke Free Campus

As part of our commitment to good health for you and your family, all Roper St. Francis Healthcare campuses are tobacco-free. Prohibiting tobacco use supports those who are trying to quit, eliminates exposure to secondhand smoke and decreases tobacco odors on individuals, which can trigger respiratory problems in vulnerable patients. Nicotine replacement therapies (NRT) are available in our gift shops.
