Our Hospital Staff
Healthcare team members are distinguishable by the color of their scrubs:

Team members from other departments also wear uniforms specific to their specialty. All staff members should wear identifi cation badges with their name and photo properly displayed.
Your safety and Security
We do hourly rounds to attend to patients' needs, comfort and safety. Our team members will check identification bracelets before administering any medication, treatment or procedure.
Food Services provides Signature Dining meal service between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Patients can order from our menu anytime during those hours by calling ext. 96600. Food orders are delivered within 45 minutes.
We provide clear, plastic "Patient Care" cases for safekeeping of personal care items such as dentures, contacts, eyeglasses and hearing aids. All other personal belongings, including clothing and jewelry, should be sent home with a family member or friend to avoid loss or interference with medical procedures. We provide access to a safe for securing valuables because we cannot be responsible for lost belongings.
Wireless-enabled internet service is available in your room. Please ask our Charge Nurse for access code information or assistance.
Cell phone use
Visitors are asked to respect other patients' privacy by staying inside the patient's room during visits and by limiting cell phone use to the patient's room and waiting areas.
Please designate a family member or trusted friend as your loved one's spokesperson. That person will receive a eight-digit privacy code to use when calling in for updates.
