  • Large windows offer direct views of nature, easily viewed from your bed.

  • Twenty percent of our new inpatient rooms contain systems that can lift and safely transfer individuals up to 600 lbs. from bed to bathroom - increasing safety and convenience for both you and hospital staff.

  • Handrails leading from the head of the bed direct you right into your own private bathroom, helping reduce the risk for falls.

  • In-room technology lets doctors and nurses easily view your electronic medical record.

Will my family be able to visit?


  • Patient visiting is available 24 hours a day, 7 days of the week, 365 days a year.
