We strive to make our rooms as home-like as possible by including comfortable chairs, a television, phone and other conveniences. Most inpatient rooms are private; however, some remain semi-private (two patients per room). We do our best to limit use of the semi-private rooms, but it is necessary on occasion.
Visitor Overnight Stays
A family member or support person may spend the night in a patient room with the nurse’s permission. If you plan to sleep in the patient’s room, please ask the nurse for a pillow and blanket. Do not bring your own from home. This helps maintain a sanitary environment.
Our Food and Nutritional Services Department is committed to offering you a variety of tasty and medically appropriate meal choices. Dietary staff will visit your room daily to discuss meal options and any restrictions put in place by your provider – such as low salt or low sugar.
