The visiting hours for our Medical/Surgical/Pediatrics (M/S/P) Unit are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. We have established these general guidelines for our patients to encourage rest and relaxation, as well as accommodate medical care, tests and treatments.
However, because we respect your need to be there for your loved one, you are welcome to discuss special visiting needs with a nurse at any time. M/S/P staff can be reached at 419-207-2430 or 1-800-257-9917, ext. 2430.
We understand the deep concern you feel over a loved one's hospitalization. Please be assured that our highly skilled staff is dedicated to our patient's well-being and health, providing comprehensive service from our medical care, to the cleanliness of our rooms.
And, since 2006, we have capitalized on the increasingly popular Hospitalist program. A Hospitalist is a board certified physician dedicated to the treatment of hospitalized patients, monitoring the patient’s condition and subsequent care.
This exclusive inpatient focus allows hospitalists to devote more time, attention and energy to addressing individual inpatient needs and concerns. Hospitalists provide frequent consultation with families, and have the added advantage of being on-site to provide care.
An inpatient with a primary care physician will be released to that physician’s care upon discharge. Any follow up care that is required upon discharge will be coordinated through our Social Services Department. To speak with one of our dedicated social workers, please contact the Social Services Department at 419-289-0491. We would be happy to provide a list of physician names and phone number for those patients who do not have a primary care physician.
For out-of-town family and friends, please know our patients appreciate a cheerful get well card, a thoughtful phone call, or lovely bouquet of flowers* just as much as a visit. Our volunteers deliver mail to patient rooms daily, as well as deliver fresh flowers as soon as they arrive. The Gift Shop at Samaritan Hospital has a wide variety of floral arrangements and gifts. Additionally, special requests are commonly filled for a thoughtful, unique touch. Please call The Gift Shop at 419-289-0491, ext. 3296 for more information.
*Please note that we discourage flowers for patients experiencing respiratory difficulty, as the flowers may aggravate the condition.
