Care begins here.

Visiting Hours

Visitors can be good medicine for patients. Family members and friends are welcome to visit at any time.  There are no specific visiting hours at Van Wert County Hospital.  However there may be occasions when visitors are asked to move to a waiting area. If this occurs, it is for the immediate well-being of the patient. More information regarding visitation is included in our Patient Rights and Responsibilities

Following are general reminders for our visitors:
  • Visitors may not smoke in patient rooms or anywhere in the hospital or outside hospital grounds.
  • Visitors must dress appropriately and must wear shirts and shoes.
