Patient and Loved One Support
We understand the importance of social connections and healing.
To stay connected with your loved one, we have support programs in place.
For questions, call The Office of Patient Experience (628) 206-5176.
We are here for you and your loved one in these times of emotional stress. Please let a member of the healthcare team know if you and/or the patient would like a phone call from our spiritual care team.
Meet My Loved One
Although you may be unable to be with your loved one, we want to provide personalized, supportive, and compassionate care for them as if you were at the bedside. You can complete the “Meet My Loved One” questionnaire to share what you want us to know about the patient and their needs. For a copy, ask the Patient Experience team in the main lobby.
Healing and Encouragement Notes for Patients
If you wish to send the patient a note or a photo that can be posted in their room, we will make sure it gets to your loved one. Please send the photo or note as an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your contact information along with the patient’s name.
