Mount Sinai Beth Israel is a 825-bed, full-service tertiary teaching hospital
that was founded on Manhattan's Lower East Side before the turn of the
20th century. Beth Israel originally was dedicated to serving a vulnerable
population in that community. Now a century later, the Medical Center
serves individuals and families from every walk of life throughout New
York City and beyond.
Visits by a family member, significant other, friend, or other designated support person can play a vital role in patients’ well-being and serve as a great source of comfort and support.
Patients have the right to decide who may or may not visit without regard to race, color, national origin, language, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, or socioeconomic status.
Generally, Beth Israel encourages that visits take place between 11am. and 8 pm daily; however, staff will work to accommodate an individual’s visitation needs while ensuring that the care and safety of the individual patient and fellow patients are not compromised. Clinical staff may determine that visitation may not be appropriate given the patient’s medical condition or that visitation should be restricted in certain circumstances. Visiting hours for specific units may vary. To inquire about hours, call the Beth Israel switchboard, 212.420.4000 Clinical staff or Security may restrict or limit visitors when:
- visitors exhibit signs or symptoms of infection (e.g. coughing, runny nose, fever, chills, etc.);
- visitors interfere with the care of other patients;
- the patient or patient’s roommate(s) need(s) rest or privacy;
- the hospital is aware that there is an existing court order restricting contact between the patient and the visitor;
- visitors engage in disruptive, threatening, or violent behavior;
- the patient is undergoing care interventions.
