Any personal information regarding your diagnosis or treatment must come from your physician. This information is considered confidential and is only available to members of your immediate family or others you designate to receive it. Please notify your physician who you select as your designated appointee and encourage family and friends to ask this person for updates on your condition and care.
Gifts for Patients
Visitors should check with the nurse before bringing gifts, food or drink to patients. In the Intensive Care Units please check with the nursing staff before bringing in gifts.
The Mimosa Gift Shop is located in the Main Lobby, close to the main entrance. The shop is staffed by volunteers and is open from 9:30am - 4:30pm Monday through Friday. Some additional hours and weekends may be available.
There are specifically designed lounge areas for visitors on each patient floor and on the main floor in the atrium. Specific waiting areas have been designated for Surgical Waiting, Critical Care Areas, and the Emergency Department. We ask that you refrain from eating and drinking in these areas and would be happy to assist you in locating the dining area or gazebo. During certain hours, a member of our Volunteer Department is on duty in the Surgery Waiting and Critical Care Areas Waiting to keep family members informed of the progress of surgery or of your loved one's conditions.
The chapel is located on the main floor in the lobby area across from the welcome desk. Visitors of all faiths are welcome to visit the chapel for prayer and quiet meditation. If you need assistance in entering the chapel, please contact Security at extension #2911 and they will be happy to assist you.
