Patient Support Services
At Banner Baywood Medical Center, we believe healing goes beyond the hospital room. Programs such as dog therapy and humor therapy are aimed at enhancing your patient experience.
Patient Support Services include:
Banner Baywood recognizes the benefits of combining traditional therapy with the use of integrative therapies such as dog, humor, or Reiki therapy to enhance patient care:
Complementary medicine is a holistic approach to health care that treats the whole person, recognizing that every aspect of life contributes to healing. A goal of this program is to bridge the gap between traditional and alternative medicine. We provide individual consultation . Call (480) 321-4340.
We all know that nutrition plays a vital role in our overall health. We focus on providing you with high quality, nutritious meals, as well as the expertise of clinical dietitians to assess your nutritional status and provide therapeutic interventions when needed. Clinical nutrition staff members are available for your inpatient needs seven days a week. Ask your nurse or physician for a referral.
Upon physician referral, Outpatient Medical Nutrition Therapy is also available Monday through Friday by appointment. Call (480) 684-7500.
Partners in Caring
Partners in Caring are family members or friends who support a patient's needs during the healing process. Learn more about becoming a Care Partner.
Often a patient's needs extend beyond the walls of the hospital. Our Social Services representatives can assist with social, emotional and financial problems resulting from hospitalization and smooth the transition to any continued care that might be needed. They also work with patients and their families to help deal with long-term illness and rehabilitation and are also involved in discharge planning. Call (480) 321-4245.
Banner Baywood believes that total care encompasses spiritual wellness in addition to physical well-being. That is why we have a chaplain available 24 hours a day. Learn more about spiritual care.
