Services for Families

We understand that surgery is a stressful time for both patients and their families. To help make their stay as comfortable as possible, we offer a Patient Education and Family Resource Center located on the third floor of the facility. The staff in this area will provide hourly updates to your family on the progress and status of your surgery. If family members choose to leave the area, they can leave contact information with our staff, who will contact them with updates. Computer access also is available.
