• Visitor Information

    In order to maintain our patients’ security, safety and comfort, we ask all visitors to:

    • Obtain a visitor’s pass at the Front Desk, with a limit of two visitors at any one time. Visitor passes are valid only for the date and area displayed and must be worn at all times while inside the hospital. Please return your visitor’s pass when leaving the hospital.
    • Check with the patient’s nurse for special restrictions.
    • Keep noise to a minimum, to avoid disrupting other patients.
    • Limit visiting to the patient’s room.

    Visitors with infections should be restricted. Visitors to patients in isolation should use good hand washing technique and wear the proper attire supervised by the nursing staff. It is recommended that only 2 persons visit a patient at one time. The number of visitors may be restricted at any given time at the discretion of the charge nurse. Visitors must abide by caution signs. Some of our units have special visiting hours because of the critical nature of the care being given.

    Visiting Hours

    General Visiting Hours are daily from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.


    We recommend immediate family only. If you require extended family visitation, please limit the number in the room.

    Waiting areas are available for family and friends.

    Visiting with Children

    Children under the age of 12 are not permitted on the units, however they are welcome to wait in common or family waiting areas. Children must be supervised at all times in order to ensure their safety and the safety of our patients.


    Visitor parking at our hospital is free of charge.


    Public restrooms are located throughout the hospital. Because patient doors do not lock, visitors should use only public restrooms to ensure privacy.

    Food Services

    Guest Trays

    Where available, guest trays can be requested with two hours advance. There may be a nominal charge a guest tray and a limit of one per patient meal. Please ask your nurse if available and to request.

    Kindred Hospital Peoria is a smoke-free campus per the Smoke-free Illinois Act. Hospital associates are authorized to enforce this policy or seek assistance from security if necessary.

    REMEMBER: The single most important thing you can do for your current and future health is to stop smoking.

    Mail and Flowers

    Cards and flowers sent by your family and friends to make your stay better are brought to your room daily. Live plants and flowers are not allowed in the ICU/MOU. If the hospital receives your mail after you are discharged, we will forward it to you. Flowers delivered after you leave the hospital, however, are returned to the florist.

    Infection Control

    We ask that all visitors observe general hygiene practices when entering and leaving patient rooms. This includes disinfecting hands using the sanitizer dispensers conveniently placed around the hospital.

    For visitors of patients who are under special infection-control precautions or isolation, please read the isolation signs, check with the patient’s nurse, and make sure you understand and cooperate with the required precautions.

    Please refrain from visiting if you have a cough, runny nose and/or congestion, sore throat, body aches, unusual weakness or tiredness, fever, rash, open sores, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or exposure to any communicable diseases such as chicken pox, measles or mumps.
