No one looks forward to a hospital stay, but at Northeast Regional Medical Center, we work hard to make sure your visit is as pleasant as possible. Here's a few things you should know about your room and our hospital in general that can help make your time with us restful and healing.
Smoking: Northeast Regional is a tobacco-free campus.
Meals: Nutritious and tasty meals are provided for both regular and modified patient diets. Families are encouraged to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at the Jefferson Street Café, however a $5.00 guest tray can be requested by calling (660) 785-1260. An outpatient nutrition consult is available by calling Centralized Scheduling at (660) 785-1279.
Senior Circle Members: If you are a member of Senior Circle you are eligible for certain benefits during your stay as a patient at Northeast Regional Medical Center.
What in-hospital benefits apply to members of Senior Circle?
When you are admitted to NRMC, you will be given a private room upgrade if available. Although a private room is not a guarantee, you should inform your nurse that you are a Senior Circle member to determine availability.
If you are admitted to NRMC late in the day or on a Friday, please ask your nurse to call the Senior Circle office to let us know of your arrival. Your Senior Circle Advisor is notified each morning as to which members are currently in the hospital.
What other benefits can I receive?
Our most popular in-hospital benefit is the meal ticket that is provided to your spouse or caregiver if you are hospitalized. This ticket can be used in the cafeteria for any single meal on the day the ticket is issued. Your family member can even order a tray to be brought to your room so that you may eat together. Also, if your spouse or family member is a member of Senior Circle and would like to have additional meals in our cafeteria, they may present their membership card for a discount.
How do I become a member?
Senior Circle benefits begin the moment that you enroll in the program. Membership dues are $15.00 a year for one person or $27.00 a year for a couple at the same address. Please call the Senior Circle office at (660) 785-1153 for more information.
Of course, we hope that you will not need to utilize your in-hospital benefits, but if you do, we want you to know that Senior Circle is here for you to help ease your stay at Northeast Regional Medical Center. We are committed to providing each patient with a positive experience.
