What about my valuables, electronic devices and money?
Valuables are best left at home. Please ask a family member or friend to take any valuables or large amounts of money home for you. The hospital is not responsible for your valuables, including laptop computers, cell phones or any other electronic devices.
Do you have interpreters available?
Medical interpreters are available to help patients who speak a language other than English. Please ask a care team member to call and request a medical interpreter.
What type of spiritual support is offered to patients and families?
We recognize that the healing process must include all dimensions of a person’s life. Pastoral Care Services provide emotional and spiritual support for patients and their families, responding to the needs of persons of all beliefs. A Pastoral Care Chaplain assists patients and families in finding meaning and purpose in life events and enables growth within their own spirituality or religious beliefs and practices. The Chaplain assists patients and families in fostering hope: in changing what can be changed and in coping positively and peacefully with what cannot be changed. Patients and families may request a pastoral visit by calling the Chaplain’s Office at extension 5516
Can I smoke while at the hospital?
All of our hospitals and outpatient clinics are smoke free environments.
Can I bring in my own electrical appliances?
Patients may bring in their personal items such as hair dryers, electric razors, curling irons, etc. For safety reasons, we do require all items be inspected by a member of our Safety Department before use.
