Rooms

Depending on the patient's situation and needs, he or she will be assigned a nonprivate or a private room.

The more personal these surroundings are, the happier the patient will be. We encourage you and your family to decorate the patient's room with photos, posters, and other familiar items.

When you visit

Patients are often in therapy until 5 p.m. Please make sure to plan your visit so it does not conflict with a patient's therapy. We may recommend you limit the number of visitors depending on the patient's care needs.

Family members may be asked to participate in therapy or other programs outside of visiting hours.
