School / Group Visit Guidelines
Thank you for your interest in visiting C.S. Mott Hospital. Please consider the following visitor guidelines before you schedule your visit at C. S. Mott Children’s Hospital.
- All community visits must be screened, approved and scheduled in advance.
- Visitors must be met in the lobby near big bird by the tour coordinator, escorted to sign in with the Community Relations Department, wear a Mott Visitor identification badge, and be accompanied by UMHS staff while in the hospital.
- You will not visit patients in their rooms or visit active treatment areas. Visits will be scheduled to occur Monday – Friday between the hours of 10am and 4pm and should last approximately one hour. All of this depends on the continued availability of areas scheduled to visit.
- Please respect patient confidentiality and privacy. Do not ask a patient, their family or staff to share information related to the patients’ personal, psychosocial

- The visit will consist of a tour of various areas throughout Mott hospitals with the possibility of going to Survival Flight for a peek in a helicopter. Keep in mind that this is a hospital and if there is an emergency the helicopters may not be here. A trip up to the 8th level playdeck may also be included, weather permitting, and provided that patients are not using it at that time.
- The ability to visit scheduled areas depends on patient flow and if there is an emergency that portion of the tour may have to be cancelled. We reserve the right to cancel any part of the tour, or the tour altogether, for any reason.
- Tour groups may not exceed twenty members.
- Please consider how the medical environment may affect your visit. If you begin to feel ill or emotional, please speak with your UMHS staff group leader, as some guests find that they are not be prepared for the impact that seriously ill or severely injured children create.
