CENTERS OF EXCELLENCE
All rooms have telephones for incoming and local calls at no charge. Your family and friends may call you directly. Your number is on your phone. Incoming calls are curtailed from 10:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. to help ensure patient rest. For local calls, dial 9 and then the number. For long distance, dial 8 + 0, then wait through the silence until connected with an AT&T operator. The patient will be asked for a credit card or phone card, or will be able to make a collect call. Calls cannot be charged to patient rooms.
Morning newspapers are sold daily by a Norwalk Hospital volunteer who will pass by your room. Other newspapers are available from vending boxes in the main lobby or from the cafeteria.
Magazines, paperback books and sundry items are sold room-to-room from the Norwalk Hospital Volunteers’ shopping cart. Other carts offer framed prints on loan and provide free craft and recreation materials.
The Grace Cole Jones Gift Shop, adjoining the Main Lobby, is full of wonderful surprises, including fresh flowers, balloons, greeting cards/stationary, toiletries, jewelry, fashions, baby gifts and toys.
The shop is open:
Monday – Friday:
8:00 AM – 7:00 PM
11:00 AM – 7:00 PM
Gift or flower deliveries to patients are made by our volunteer staff prior to 3:00 p.m. at no additional service charge. Please call the shop at 203-852-2444. Proceeds from the Gift Shop are used for the improvement of hospital programs and services.
The hospital is equipped with an automatic teller machine (ATM), located on the main corridor on the first floor of the main building.
