Mail and Newspapers
Personal mail and the local newspaper are delivered to your room by the hospital auxiliary, a network of volunteers that staff many areas of the hospital and assist with patient needs and services.
Just because you are in the hospital doesn’t mean that all of your communication with the outside world has to end. Cell phones are permitted, just be mindful of others while using your cell phone in public areas.
