Visiting Guidelines


Updated Jan. 14, 2024

Welcome to Southern California Hospital at Culver City, where the health and safety of our patients, families, and staff are our top priority. All visitors must be screened prior to entry, check-in at the hospital’s front desk and adhere to the hospital’s visitation protocols. The hospital reserves the right to deny general visitation and overnight stays to ensure the health and safety of all patients, visitors, and staff. 

  • Acute Care and Sub-Acute visitation hours are daily from 8 a.m.-8 p.m.
  • Behavioral Health and Chemical Dependency hours are Monday-Friday from 5-7 p.m., Saturday-Sunday and holidays from 1-3 p.m.

We continue to evaluate local, state, and federal COVID-19 requirements and recommendations to allow more people to safely visit their loved one while receiving care.

Due to an increase in COVID cases across Los Angeles County, universal masking is required in all patient areas.

  2. Visitors must wear personal protective equipment (PPE) while in the room with the patient at all times
