While you and your family are guests at Salina Regional Health Center, we will do everything we can to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Our goal is to deliver a patient and family experience that surpasses expectations. We will gladly take the time to personally walk you to where you need to go, answer any questions you may have, and offer the comfort and compassion you need. Please do not hesitate to stop and ask help from any Salina Regional staff member you see while you are a guest here.
Remember, we want you to be as comfortable as possible while you are a guest here. We will be happy to supply you with sufficient bed clothing for your stay; however, you may find it more comfortable to bring your own pajamas and a bathrobe. You may also want to bring some personal items with you such as a toothbrush and toothpaste, hairbrush, slippers, shaving equipment, etc. Any electrical items such as hair dryers or electric razors will need to be safety checked before being allowed in your room for the safety of all our patients and guests.
We urge you not to bring valuables with you to the hospital. The Health Center cannot assume responsibility for large amounts of cash, expensive jewelry or other valuables kept in patient rooms. Such items may be checked into safekeeping upon your admission if you wish. On the day of your dismissal we encourage you to pick up your valuables before 4:30 p.m.
When not in use, fragile items such as dentures or eyeglasses should be kept in a protective container and labeled appropriately to prevent them from getting misplaced or broken.
All adult patient rooms, with the exception of those in the Psychiatric Services Unit and the Rehabilitation Unit, are equipped with television sets which have remote control and pillow speakers.
All television sets are served by cable television. A TV guide is located in your Patient Handbook that you receive when you check in.
For your health education, patient televisions are also equipped with closed circuit education programming. Program guides are available in patient rooms.

While you are a patient at Salina Regional Health Center, you will be provided with a full restaurant-style menu consisting of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, specialty entrees, traditional entrees, desserts and beverages.

If a patient or family member has not called to place an order, food service personnel will either call you on the phone or come to your room to visit with you about your meal selection.
The Health Center's dietitians work closely with your doctor in the areas of diet therapy and nutrition. Should you have any questions about your diet, a dietitian will be glad to visit with you about any problems or modifications.
If your physician prescribes a special diet to be continued after your dismissal, instructions in meal preparations and management will be provided before you leave the hospital.
