Visitation
We realize the important supportive role that friends and family can play in your care.  To accommodate the needs of our visitors, Licking Memorial Hospital offers open visitation. 
Hours
Visitors should enter through the Hospital’s main entrance.  A volunteer receptionist can help direct you to your desired destination.  After hours, visitors should enter through the Emergency Department entrance.
