Valuables or Lost Items

Patients are asked not to bring items of value to the hospital. If you do bring anything of value, it should be deposited in the safe in the admitting office located on the ground floor in the lobby. You will be given a written receipt for all items, which must be presented when you withdraw them. The hospital does not accept responsibility for items of value unless they are deposited in the safe. If you lose something, please notify your nurse immediately, who will report the loss to security services.

Cell Phones

In an effort to insure the safety and well being of all our patients, the hospital safety committee requests that cell phones be turned off when in the vicinity of patient monitoring equipment. Thank you for your cooperation.
