To inquire about a lost or found item, call Security between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. or dial 0 and the operator will assist you. The hospital is not responsible for loss or damage to items such as glasses, dentures, hearing aids and contact lenses.
Letters and packages will be delivered to your room by a volunteer. Mail that arrives after you have been discharged will be forwarded to your home. To send mail, give your stamped letters and postcards to your nurse.

Spiritual and Emotional Needs
Your spiritual and emotional needs are very important to us. The hospital chapel is located off the main lobby of the third floor. If you would like to speak with a chaplain or page a chaplain after business hours, ask your nurse. You may also want to contact your own church to notify them of your hospitalization.
The hospital provides the AT&T Language Line for in-house translation. Ask your nurse for information.
Wireless Pagers in Waiting Rooms
Wireless pagers at Banner Heart Hospital now offer families in waiting rooms the chance to move more freely around the hospital while waiting for news about their loved ones. The pagers are similar to the kind used in restaurants to notify patrons that an open table is available. They’re especially helpful for visitors whose loved one is undergoing a lengthy surgery or medical procedure. Visitors can take the pager with them anywhere in the hospital or Banner Baywood Medical Center, to be paged when a physician needs to update them on the patient's progress.
