Sending a gift
It's easy to order flowers or a gift or a greeting online for patients at St. Luke's.
St. Luke's believes having visitors and family present during
hospitalization may help patients in their recovery. In addition, we
recognize the rights of patients to have visitors while they are
hospitalized. Visitors are typically welcome from 5 a.m. - 8 p.m., although some
units may have more limited visiting policies that meet the need of
their patients. In addition, we observe a quiet time
from 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. each day.
