Visitor Information

Family and friends are important to your well-being, and they are welcome to visit during your stay. We recognize that each person has individual needs, and we are willing to help work out visiting times based on your needs, the needs of other patients and the activities on the unit.

Intensive Care Units

Family and friends have access to ICU patients 24 hours a day. However, we ask that visitors observe the patient’s quiet time from 10:30 p.m. to 8 a.m. We also have limited visitation from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. to allow for report time. We may alternate visitation hours during times of emergency and/or to preserve a safe environment. We provide a phone in the ICU waiting room that visitors may use to check on their loved one at any time.


Parking for patients and visitors is located at the Sparks Main Entrance. A large parking lot extends from the hospital to Towson Avenue and from I Street to G Street. Sparks is not responsible for damage to vehicles or property stolen from vehicles parked on the parking lots. Free valet service is also available to all patients and visitors at our Main Entrance from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
