Please view our Flu Visitation Guidelines before you visit.

Hospital Visiting Hours

RWJ Rahway visiting hours for inpatients are 11 a.m. – 8 p.m. seven days a week. All visitors must sign in at the lobby desk and utilize the visitor pass system.

Visitor parking is $2. We also have discounted weekly parking for $10. See the cashier in the lobby to purchase a card.

The hospital recognizes the rights of the patients to rest and recuperate and therefore reserves the right to limit the number of visitors. Visitation guidelines for special patient populations are as follows:

  • Visitors must be over the age of 14.
  • Visitors under age 14 can visit accompanied by an adult Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays 2pm to 4pm.
  • CRITICAL CARE: CORONARY CARE UNIT (CCU), SURGICAL INTENSIVE CARE UNIT (SICU): We advocate 24-hour visitation for families in our Critical Care Units. Please limit visitors to two (2) at a time, over the age of 14. We ask for no visitors between 7 a.m. - 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. - 8 p.m. during our shift change.
  • CARE CONNECTION (Subacute Care Unit): Anyone in the family can visit anytime day or night. There are no restrictions.

Under special arrangement, only one (1) visitor may stay at the patient’s bedside overnight (inpatients only). Visitors who have colds, flu or signs/symptoms of infection are requested to refrain from visiting patients.

Visitors of patients in isolation are required to follow isolation protocol. Nursing staff may ask visitors to leave a patient area when circumstances indicate that it is in the best interest of the patient and/or visitor.

Patient requests to refuse visitation are reasonably honored by hospital staff.
