Patients & Visitors

Whether you are joining us for a hospital stay or visiting friends or loved ones, this section will guide you through some of the most common topics of interest for patients and visitors.  We understand that sometimes it provides comfort for a patient to have his or her spouse stay overnight. Please discuss this option with the patient’s nurse.

Spiritual/Pastoral Care
Our Spiritual Care department is committed to trying to help our patients meet their religious or spiritual needs while in the hospital, and is staffed by a full-time chaplain and numerous on-call volunteer chaplains who can help patients and families deal with fears, worries, doubts and questions that arise in times of illness or trauma.
