Contacting A Patient

Waiting Areas

There are specially designated lounge areas for visitors on each patient floor and on the main floor in the lobby. Specific waiting areas have been designated for families of patients in the critical care units, the emergency department, surgery and outpatient procedures.

During certain hours, a volunteer hostess is on duty in each of these waiting areas to assist family and friends of our patients.  To contact a specific waiting area, please check our Phone Directory for more information.
