For Visitors


We welcome all our visitors to Abbeville General.  Please don’t hesitate to stop and ask a member of our excellent staff for assistance while visiting.

Visitation Hours

The hospital’s visitation policy was created to ensure our patients a quiet and safe atmosphere in which to recover. Only one person may spend the night with a patient. Permission must be granted by nursing personnel, and the person must stay in the patient’s room. Exceptions to the visitation policy may be made for critically ill, laboring, emergency surgery and pediatric patients. Permission may be obtained from the nursing supervisor.

Intensive Care Unit

Visiting hours are 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM. Only two family members are allowed at one time.  Children under 12 years of age are not allowed into ICU. Sleep chairs are available for one person to stay overnight with the patient.
