Visiting Hours & Guidelines

We understand that when someone you love is in the hospital, you want to be with them as much as possible. Please keep in mind that Delray’s visiting hours are carefully timed for the benefit of the patient and each nursing area. They may be adjusted at the nursing staff’s discretion, depending on the department’s activities and the patient’s need for care and rest. 

Visiting hours are specific to each nursing unit and may be subject to change. Find out the current hours by calling our hospital information desk at (561) 498-4440.

In general, visiting hours are:

ICU: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. to 9 p.m.

All other patient care areas: 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
