At Lawrence Memorial Hospital, we value the support of your family and friends. During your surgery, our staff keeps them updated and takes good care of them. We have established the following guidelines to keep your family informed and to protect your well-being during your stay. Please review the following information with your visitors before your upcoming procedure. Download a Visitor's Guide and Parking Map.
Your physician or nurse may limit the number and frequency of your visitors in order to protect your health and enable your rest. Requests to stay overnight are granted on an individual basis by your nurse. Please advise visitors who may have a contagious illness to postpone their visits.
Your family and friends may also call LMH at 785-505-5000 and request to be transferred to your room or get your direct number.
Family Waiting Area
During your surgery, family and friends may stay in the Family Waiting Area located next to the surgery suites. Our waiting area provides plenty of room with comfortable seating and televisions. Your surgeon will visit with your family once your procedure is completed, so it is important that at least one person is available. Your family will be provided with a pager so they know when the physician is ready to meet with them. Our Waiting Area also provides a digital patient tracking board to keep your family continually updated on your progress during your surgery.
Complimentary wireless internet is available in most public waiting areas, in the Atrium/cafeteria and in some patient rooms. Wired access is available in all patient rooms.
LMH visitors can dine in the hospital's cafeteria, located on the Lower Level (LL) next to the Atrium. Hot meals, soups, salad and deli bars, grill-to-order items, soft serve, desserts, snack items, and hot and cold beverages are available.
Breakfast 6:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.
Lunch 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
