favorite Visiting Information

At KSB, we know how much your presence means to a loved one who is in the hospital. Here is a quick look at essential information that you, as a visitor, need to know.

  • Visitors are encouraged to park in the front of the hospital in the main upper parking deck and enter through Door #4, before 6 pm. 
  • On weekends, visitors should enter and exit through the KSB Emergency Department, located just off of First Street. It is recommended to park in the Commerce Towers parking lot. 
  • To ensure the well-being of our patients, some units, such as our ICU, may limit visitation.

  • KSB Hospital is a smoke-free campus for its patients, staff, and visitors.

KSB has updated our visitor policies to allow patients to bring up to two visitors at a time with them for appointments and during inpatient stays.
