Patient Information / Your Hospital Stay
During your hospital stay, our primary goal is to ensure that you receive excellent care and have a positive experience. If there is anything we can do to better serve you or make you more comfortable, please ask any member of our staff.
Partners in Care
We consider patients and families as an active part of the care team, which means we listen, invite questions, encourage your participation, and share information about your condition in a way you can understand. We also encourage you to choose up to two partners in care—family or friends who will be listed on your medical record and are present and involved during your hospital stay.
Hours and Services
In order to give you the healthiest possible environment during your stay, we’ve joined a city-wide initiative for tobacco-free hospitals. Individuals may not use any tobacco products anywhere on our campuses. That includes hospitals, parking lots/decks, sidewalks, and in cars on hospital property.
When you’re admitted to a Methodist hospital, please let the admissions staff know if you use tobacco. We’ll give this information to your doctor, who can arrange nicotine replacement products or discuss alternatives for you. If you’re ready to stop using tobacco, tell your doctor or nurse. They can help.
