- Two visitors are allowed in the patient’s room at any time. This rule may be waived by the nursing staff under certain circumstances.

There are vending machines located outside the emergency entrance, on the 1st floor adjacent to the cafeteria, and on the 3rd floor next to the visitor waiting area.
Calling A Patient
To reach a patient’s room, please call 706-439-6400 and, at the prompt, enter their room number.
Telephones for local calls are provided for use by visitors on the first floor at the Registration waiting area, the Main Lobby, and inside the Emergency Department waiting area.
The Chaplaincy Program is based on the belief that in a time of crises, all of us need supportive relationships with other individuals. It is the philosophy of this program that clergymen and women can make a significant contribution to patients and their families by offering care and support during times of need.
A chaplain is on duty daily. Monday through Friday the chaplain on duty makes hospital calls to patients who have requested a visit. On Saturday and Sunday the chaplains are available in event of an emergency. Please do not hesitate to notify the nursing staff if you or your family member desire to see a chaplain.
