Visiting Hours

Mercy Hospital recognises the important role family/whanau and friends have in a patient’s care and treatment.

The Visitor Policy, which outlines visiting hours and special considerations, is available at Reception areas or can be downloaded here.

The buildings and grounds associated with Mercy Hospital are Smoke Free.    


Visiting Hours – for Coolock Day Stay Unit

Our Day Stay Unit has limited space for friends and family so the number of visitors to this area is restricted.

Visiting hours – McAuley Ward: 2pm – 8pm.

Visitors are most welcome but visiting hours are set to allow patients adequate rest and recovery time.

We do strongly discourage visiting outside of these hours as visitors can be disruptive to others, particularly in shared rooms.


Please discuss issues relating to visiting hours with the Nursing staff.
