We ask you NOT to bring jewelry or other valuables, extra money or additional credit cars, a hair dryer, electric shaver, or other electrical appliances.

During your Stay

While under our care, you will be cared for by essential members of our staff.  A variety of professionals will attend to the many tasks required to ensure your needs are met.

In addition to your medical team, our Food and Nutrition Services team works with your Physician to determine the diet that is right for you and our Building Services department will ensure that your room is clean.

Our Nurses are here to uphold your rights as a patient.  They are responsible for conveying to you your health status, medication requirements, and medical treatments and procedures, as well s helping you deal with any challenges you may face over the course of your care.

You can use patient room call bells to page a Nurse for emergency help or regular assistance, day and night.
