Please note the following before coming to the Heart Institute for a visit:
Visiting hours at the Heart Institute are from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. We ask visitors to respect these hours.
Family Lounges are located on the main floor, Cardiac Surgery Intensive Care Unit (CSICU) and the Regional Referral Centre. They are open from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and offer privacy to those waiting for results, an update from a doctor after a procedure, or information concerning a critically ill patient. Access to the Family Lounges can be arranged through the volunteers at the front desk in the main lobby.
Latex balloons are not permitted in the Heart Institute because they can pose a danger to patients with latex allergies.
