Surgical Patients and Visitors
In order to ensure the safety and well-being of our patients and staff during the COVID-19 outbreak, the visitation policy at our facilities has changed: As of April 1, 2020, no visitors will be allowed at Methodist Health System hospitals. Please take a moment to review the full, updated policy on our COVID-19 information page.
Whether you will be a patient or visiting a loved one having surgery, we have designed comforts to help during this time.
Surgery waiting areas
The first floor has been designed as the main waiting area for a surgical patient's loved ones. The area is furnished with televisions, computerized patient location screens and comfortable furniture for your comfort.
Food service for visitors
While you wait for your loved one to progress through surgery, you are invited to use our food service.
Preparing for surgery
Our Surgical Services Booklet (also available in Spanish) contains more detailed information about your surgery preparation, maps to the location and additional helpful information. If you have questions regarding your procedure, call your surgeon or health care provider. Our Bathing Before Surgery (also available in Spanish) sheet also contains important pre-op information.
