To protect your health and the health of others, Perry Memorial Hospital is a Tobacco-Free campus.
During your inpatient stay, every effort is made to provide you with nourishing, attractive and tasty food. You may choose from several selections for each meal within the limitations ordered by your doctor.
You are provided with a color television. Please keep the volume of the television to a minimum respecting the rights of other patients.
Your room is furnished with a telephone because we realize how important it is to be able to talk with your family and friends while you are in the hospital. To make a local call, Dial 9 + 1 + the area code + the number. When making long distance calls, Dial 9 + 1 + area code + the number. You may bill your calls to your home phone, your calling card, or you may call collect.

The use of two-way radios and cellular phones is permitted in most areas of the hospital. Please ask your nurse if there are any restrictions for use in your room.
