For Visitors

At Brooks, we celebrate the family and friends who sustain our patients during their rehabilitation, and we encourage them to take an active role at every stage of our patients’ treatment. But we do ask visitors to be mindful of the fact that our patients’ rehabilitation must be their first priority, and that all visitors need to make sure they are supporting our patients’ rehabilitation goals. Beyond that, we welcome visitors to take advantage of all the amenities available and make themselves at home while they are here, so our patients can do the same.

Reception & Information

A receptionist is available in the Main Lobby to provide directions and information Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. until 9:00 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Visiting Hours

Visiting hours are from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. daily. Family and friends are invited to visit with our patients in patient lounges or in their rooms. Due to limited space in patient rooms, we request that visitors be limited to two (2). Children are welcome to visit but must be under adult supervision at all times.

Because of our patients' special needs, we request that visitors:

  • Be careful not to interrupt therapy schedules.
  • Check with the nursing staff before bringing any food into the hospital. Some patients are on restricted diets.
  • Follow all rules and regulations as described by staff.


Patients’ meals are served in their rooms or in the activity rooms located on each floor at the following times:
Breakfast 7:30 a.m.
Lunch 12:00 noon
Dinner 5:30 p.m.

In addition to service in the activity rooms, there is a cafeteria, called the Sandpiper Café located on the first floor of the hospital. Patients are allowed to dine in the hospital cafeteria with physician permission. When choosing to dine in the cafeteria, patients should notify the nursing staff as soon as possible prior to the meal. This will give the staff time to obtain a dietary order to take to the cafeteria and cancel the regular meal tray.

The Sandpiper Café hours are:
Breakfast: 7:00 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.
Lunch: 11:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. (full service), 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. (cold sandwiches and salads)
Dinner: 4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. (full service), 6:00 p.m. –  6:30 p.m. (cold sandwiches and salads)

The hospital also has a Gift Shop located in the lobby for essential toiletries, snacks and gifts.

The Gift Shop hours are:
Monday – Friday 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (Wednesday closing time is 4:00 p.m.)
Saturday 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Sunday 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
