Visitor Resources

Visitor Information

Visiting hours are guided by individual patient needs and preferences. Visitors are encouraged to help maintain a restful environment for all our patients. Click here for maps.

Mail and flowers

We are happy to deliver flowers or cards to our patients. If the patient has been discharged, we will forward to their home address. Please, no latex balloons, as some patients are allergic. Also, please refrain from fragrant flowers, such as lilies, as many are sensitive to scents.

There are exceptions in critical care areas. Please call the hospital at 218-365-8710 with any questions you may have.

Send mail and flowers to:

Ely-Bloomenson Community Hospital
328 West Conan Street
Ely, Minnesota 55731
