Athens-Limestone Hospital offers a variety of special services to make your stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible. These special services include the following:

Mail

Letters and packages for patients are delivered each morning by volunteers. Letters and parcels that arrive after you have been discharged are forwarded to your home. Stamps and stationery may be purchased in the gift shop. Outgoing mail may be left at the nurses' station or given to a volunteer.

Flowers

Flowers are delivered to your room by volunteers. Please keep in mind that large plants and flowers are difficult to remove upon discharge. Small arrangements may be purchased in the Auxiliary Gift Shop. Flowers are not allowed in the intensive care unit.

Newspapers

Newspapers may be purchased at the entrance to the hospital.

For the Hearing Impaired

A telecommunications device is available to help hearing impaired patients or patients who want to communicate with a hearing-impaired relative or friend. Closed caption television is available.

Interpreters

For non-English speaking patients, Athens-Limestone Hospital will provide an interpreter, whenever possible. When an interpreter is not available on-site, a phone interpreter service is available at all times. For information about interpreter services, you may ask a member of our nursing staff.
