Visitor restrictions in effect

Out of an abundance of caution, Hartford HealthCare (HHC) is restricting visitation and reducing the number of entrances to its hospital facilities due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

St. Vincent's is currently limiting visitors to one person per patient.
Our visiting hours are currently 12 Noon - 8:00 PM until further notice.
All visitors must use the main entrance where they will be screened.

Questions about the coronavirus? Need help? Hartford HealthCare’s COVID-19 Clinical Command Center hotline, staffed by healthcare professionals, is now available to the community. To reach the 24-hour hotline, call 860.972.8100 or (toll-free) 833.621.0600.



St. Vincent’s Medical Center welcomes and encourages family and friends to visit patients. In fact, if the patient permits, we believe that spending time with loved ones is an important part of the healing process.

For the safety of our patients, their caregivers and visitors, we ask you to limit visits to the hours specified below. Times and rules vary depending on the unit you are visiting.

Friends and relatives may call the hospital's patient information line at (203) 576-5432 anytime between 6 am-9 pm to find out a patient's room and telephone number.
