Patient & visitor information

Note: Due to COVID-19, we’ve updated our visitation policy. Check our current visitation policy before visiting this facility.

Just ask

If you have any questions about your healthcare, your room, the hospital or our services, just ask your nurse or member of the Geisinger Jersey Shore Hospital team.

We know it can be hard to be away from home — and in a hospital — for any reason. We make sure that we listen to every request or question and then get answers. Talk to us. Our goal is to make your experience as a patient or visitor as pleasant as possible.

Admission: Registration hours

Admission and ER registration are available 24 hours a day.


Visitors are often good medicine for patients. Family and friends are encouraged to visit patients during their hospital stay. There may be some restrictions, based on the patient’s safety, well-being or medical condition.

For the welfare of patients, the nursing staff may request that visitors leave a patient room at any time. Patients may also request the restriction of visitors simply by notifying the nursing staff.

Visitation guidelines

  • Don't visit the hospital if you have any signs of illness, such as a cough, runny nose or fever.If you’re not sure whether it’s safe to visit, ask your doctor or one of the nurses caring for patient you want to visit.
  • Ask the patient's nurse if it is OK to bring plants or flowers to a patient’s room. In some cases, they can increase the risk for infection for patients.
  • Visitors may be asked to leave the hospital if they become disruptive or interfere with the comfort or care of patients, other visitors or staff.
  • Alcohol is not allowed on the Geisinger Jersey Shore campus.

Tobacco use

Geisinger cares about your health and the health of our employees. The entire Geisinger Jersey Shore campus is a tobacco-free environment.
