Contacting a Patient
Phone a Patient
To contact a patient at the hospital, you will need the patient's full name. Call our main line at 844-4CHILDRENS. The operator will give you the hospital room phone number for the patient.
Please note, though, that the patient's parent may choose not to make this information available. In that case, the operator is not able to provide any information for that young person.
Under no circumstances will the operator disclose information about a patient's medical status or any other personal information.
