In support of our commitment to delivering excellence and to promote a healing and welcoming environment, FHN encourages patient visits. No check-in or visitor badge is required, and there are no specific visiting hours or nighttime visiting restrictions (except for the FHN Family Birthing Center – please see below for details).
During flu season or other epidemic situations, FHN may limit visits – if so, signage will indicate any restrictions.
We encourage a quiet healing environment for our patients' comfort. A quiet atmosphere is important to encourage the healing process. A rest period is observed every day from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m., and after 8 p.m.
From 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. all visitors must enter through the Emergency Room.
Phone-charging stations are available in visitor lounge areas – ask for assistance if needed.
At all times, please be respectful of the need for quiet in patient areas – adjust the volume of any electronics, and keep conversation levels low.

Due to the increasing number of patients and staff with latex allergies, we ask that latex balloons not be sent or brought to the hospital. Mylar balloons are a good substitution.
Spiritual care can provide a supportive and comforting role in your healing process. Our commitment to spiritual care is exemplified through coordination of pastoral services with local churches and other communities of faith, respecting each patient/family's unique cultural, spiritual, and psychosocial needs. A chapel is located on the first floor of the hospital in the central corridor. Patients, family, and friends may use the chapel for prayer, reflection, or private family meetings. The chaplain may be reached by calling 815-599-6160 or ext. 6160 from inside the hospital.
Language Interpreter services are available through Transperfect Services. Services for the hearing impaired are available through Center for Sight and Hearing Impaired Services. Please ask a staff member if you or a family member needs language assistance, hearing assistance, or visual assistance. Arrangements for these services will be made by a staff member.
