Visitation Status:

Indoor visitation privileges are now allowed at all times for all patients (residents) with no limitations on the frequency, length, and number of visitors. However, we highly encourage all visitors to schedule visitation appointments to decrease the waiting times in the hospital lobby. TCU will continue to enforce infection control and prevention by ensuring ample social distancing are practiced that we must control the flow of traffic as visitors come and go in TCU. Those who do not have visitation appointments may have to expect to wait until cleared to enter TCU.

Please call Rayza Batista, Director of Recreational Activities, at 201-418-2151 to schedule appointments.

Please feel free to reach out to Rayza Batista for any feedback, questions, concerns, or complaints.
