  • Visitor Information

    Cafeteria

    The hospital cafeteria is located on the first floor and is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Our vending machines offer a wide selection of foods for lunch and dinner.

    As we are located on beautiful Las Olas Boulevard, there are a large number of restaurants within walking distance of the hospital that vary in price range from inexpensive to very expensive.

    Parking/Security

    Visitor parking is provided in designated areas of the hospital lot. The hospital parking lot is located at the rear of the building. Spaces for handicapped parking also are available. While we strive to keep all areas of the hospital secure, we are not responsible for vehicle damage, fire or theft while parked in the hospital lot.

    Our designated security staff is available 24 hours a day. After 7 p.m. all doors are locked; please use the doorbell located at the front for admission after hours. The security staff will provide escorts to and from cars.

    Supporting Your Family Member

    Monthly patient care conferences give family members the opportunity to meet with clinical staff to discuss their loved one’s current condition and progress and to answer questions. You will receive notice of these conferences from your case manager. It is important that families participate in these conferences.

    You can schedule a conference with the physician and the healthcare team at any time. Please inform your case manager, and he or she will coordinate the meeting.

    Being away from home is difficult and dealing with illness is a very emotionally demanding task. Whether your loved one can respond to you or not, you can help keep their spirits up by doing the following:

    Family Visits – There is no substitute for the presence of loved ones. We encourage family visits as often as possible, in accordance with our visitation policy.

    Communication – Share family news. Discuss events at home. Include your family member when making important decisions.

    Touch – Frequent hugs, kisses, caresses or hand holding are essential to the human spirit.

    Also, surround patients with any personal items that have special meaning to them. Bring in family pictures and/or videos – a VCR is available for your use. Display pictures and letters in easily viewed locations. If your loved one has favorite music, bring in a recorder with tapes for them to enjoy. Bring in books, newspapers and games they enjoy.

    Your presence and input into your loved one’s care make a difference beyond measure.

    Post-Hospital Care

    When your doctor determines that you or your loved one no longer need the specialized services of our hospital but still require medical care, he or she may discharge you to a skilled nursing facility, a rehabilitation center or to home care. Our discharge planner will help arrange for the services you may need after leaving the hospital.

    Medicare and supplemental insurance policies have limited coverage for skilled nursing care and home healthcare. Check your policies to be certain what services will be covered.

    No smoking is permitted in the hospital.
