Inpatient Department

If you're an inpatient, the most important thing is the comfort and normalcy of having family members and friends who visit and spend time with you. St. Joseph's Hospital provides an environment that makes it easier for everyone to relax and maybe even forget that they are at a hospital!

  • All inpatient rooms are private; patients do not have to share their room.
  • Patient visiting is available 24 hours a day, 7 days of the week, 365 days a year.
  • Large windows offer direct views of nature, easily viewed from the patient's bed.
  • All rooms have "family zones" which allow guests a comfortable place to visit or even sleep, if desired.
  • Patients and visitors can stay connected to internet friends with high-speed wireless access.
  • The Wi-Fi Cafe near the Inpatient Department is open 24 hours a day for the convenience of family and friends.
  • Beautiful outdoor spaces, such as the Franciscan healing garden, offer destinations for relaxation and personal reflection.
  • 20% of our new inpatient rooms contain patient lift systems that can lift individuals up to 600 lbs. and safely transfer them from their bed into the bathroom – increasing safety and convenience for both the patient and hospital staff.
  • In-room technology that allows for patients to “link up” with family and friends to video chat via wireless internet access.
  • In-room technology that allows physicians and nurses to view the patient’s electronic medical record.
  • Handrails that lead from the head of the bed that direct the patient right into their own private bathroom – a safety feature that can help reduce the risk for patient falls.

Experience indicates that if you are comfortable and relaxed, you will rest easier and heal faster — our Inpatient Department is designed to provide the perfect healing environment! For more information on our inpatient care, please contact (618) 651-2600 or you may dial a patient's room directly by calling (618) 651-2760.
