Seeing family and friends can be “good medicine” for you, so we encourage guests. However, we ask that they follow these guidelines while they’re visiting:
Guests may be asked to leave the room during tests or treatments, or when the doctor or nurse needs to see you.
A tranquil and scenic garden is located to the right of the main entrance. A lovely, new seating area overlooks the greenery and a statue of St. Clare.
Memorial bricks pave a pathway and recognize loved ones. Visitors are invited to sit and reflect or simply take in a moment of fresh air.
Indoor seating overlooking the garden will be added to allow visitors a chance to enjoy the scene in winter.
For information on how to purchase a garden brick in memory of your loved one, contact the HSHS St. Clare Foundation.
Ample free parking is available at HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital.
Accommodations for relatives and visitors from out-of-town are available at nearby motels. Ask your caregiver about nearby options.
A nurturing environment is important to health and healing. When a loved one is in the hospital, family members and friends can provide important support during the hospital stay and after the return home. We find that when family or friends are active in a patient’s care, recovery is faster and the return home is easier.
HSHS St. Clare Partners in Caring Program offers this support. Patients, who could benefit from this program, are encouraged to select one individual who will be their Partner in Caring. This person will receive a badge that identifies him/her as a Partner in Caring for the length of the patient’s stay. If you are interested in this program, please ask your nurse.
HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital provides free computer and internet access, located in the Surgical Services Waiting Area next to the SCMH Pharmacy. In addition, SCMH is pleased to provide free wireless capabilities in patient rooms and in main waiting areas. Wireless access makes it possible for individuals to bring their own laptops and continue to use these personal devices while they are at the hospital, free of charge.
The Chapel is located near the hospital’s main entrance on the first floor.
Mass times are posted outside of the Chapel. People of all faiths are welcome to our Chapel as a place for prayer and quiet reflection. The chapel is a gift we treasure, and we are pleased to share it with you. It symbolizes our belief that in all things God is present.
