Visitor Information

Our goal is to provide our patients with a quiet healing environment. We ask that you limit the number of visitors to two people at a time. If others would like to visit, please have people take turns. We ask people not to visit if they have a fever, cold, sore throat, flu or have recently been exposed to – but have never had – chicken pox, measles or mumps.

Please also help us maintain a quiet hospital by refraining from loud noises or voices. Please note Lompoc Valley Medical Center is a “No Pets” facility. Only service dogs are permitted. LVMC complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Visitor Badges

All visitors must check in upon arriving, at which point, each visitor will receive a badge. All visitors MUST have a badge, no exceptions.


Parents and grandparents may visit at any time. We encourage one parent to be with the child at all times. Healthy siblings may visit but please limit their visit to 30 minutes or less.

Labor and Delivery

The father or significant other may stay and visit at any time. Other visitors are welcome, but we ask that you only have two additional people in the room at a time.

The length of the visit may be adjusted by the nurse caring for the patient. Visitor restrictions are in place during shift changes. Those times are 6 to 7 am and 6 to 7 pm. A waiting room is accessible immediately outside the doors of the Birth Center, and an outdoor garden is accessible near the Medical-Surgical waiting room.

Surgery Waiting

Family members waiting for Surgery patients may wait in the Surgery Waiting Room. Please let the staff know who you are so we can notify you when the surgery is complete and the surgeon can talk to you.
