Visitor Information

Nantucket Cottage Hospital recognizes that visits from family and friends are important to the healing process. We strive to create a welcoming, supportive and safe environment for our patients, families, visitors and staff while respecting the health care needs and confidentiality of our patients.

Masking Policy Update

As of March 26, 2024, we have moved from a high level of respiratory virus activity to the mild/moderate level. At the mild/moderate level, Nantucket Cottage Hospital employees are no longer required to wear a facility-issued mask during direct interactions in clinical locations with patients. We are also no longer strongly recommending that patients and visitors do the same in these situations.

As a reminder, regardless of the time of year, please contact your care team if you have any of the following below before an in-person appointment:

Inpatient Visitor Information:  

  • Inpatient visiting hours are 11:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
  • Inpatients are permitted two visitors at a time
  • Those eligible inpatients may have one designated support person, in addition to their visitors
  • Inpatients in the Birthplace may have three designated support people through labor and delivery. After delivery, two additional visitors are permitted during visitor hours.
  • Support persons are not limited to the designated visiting hours
