Visitors are welcome at American Fork Hospital. Patients benefit from the support and encouragement of visitors, which helps healing.
In general, visitors may visit American Fork Hospital at any time. Patients may specify visiting times or request no visitors, and we honor those requests. We encourage visitors to avoid visiting the hospital during shift changes (6 a.m. and 6 p.m.) so our medical staff can properly prepare for their shift.
To protect our patients and their privacy, we lock the outside doors after 9 p.m. To visit after 9 p.m., please check in with security at the front entrance before visiting a patient. Please be aware that we institute a quiet at night protocol every night at 9 p.m., where we keep noises and disruptions to a minimum.
Well visitors only, please.

Due to the infectious nature of the flu virus, the following temporary visiting policy is in effect to protect our patients, visitors and hospital staff:
- No visitors under 14 years of age allowed on any hospital units.
- No sick visitors. Please do not visit at this time if you have any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, wheezing, vomiting or diarrhea.
Protect your loved one by staying home if you are sick or have recently been exposed to a contagious illness such as chicken pox, measles, mumps, pertussis (whooping cough), tuberculosis, or rubella. This helps patients avoid infections that could jeopardize their recovery.
