We believe total patient care demands attention to one’s spiritual, as well as physical and emotional needs. Chaplains are available 24 hours a day and can be reached through your nurse. Your priest, minister, rabbi or other spiritual official is always welcome to visit. We actively partner with local ministers and communities of faith. George W. Truett, one of our founders, called for Baylor to be a place “where people of all faiths and those of none can come with equal confidence.”
Each patient room, except for those in the intensive care units, features a 30-inch television. You may access hospital information and other useful information on Channel 2 as well as relaxing music on Channel 18. Please respect other patients by keeping the volume low and turning off sets at bedtime.
There are designated lounges for visitors on patient floors. Specific areas have been designated for guests in other areas. If you are in a large group, we ask for your consideration of other patients’ families when seating is limited.
