Support from your loved ones is essential to the healing process; therefore families and friends are welcome at Lake Regional. We do ask that visitors work closely with the care team so that our patients receive proper rest and sleep. And, some units might have additional check-in or security procedures to ensure the safety of our patients.
Family and friends should check with your nurse or refrain from visiting if they have cold or flu symptoms or have been exposed to other infectious diseases such as tuberculosis, chickenpox (varicella), meningitis, measles or mumps.
The cafeteria is located on the lower level of the hospital and is open daily from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. In addition, vending machines are located throughout the hospital.
Cellphone usage is prohibited in areas where telemetry is in use. Signs are posted in applicable locations throughout the hospital.

Visitors are encouraged to use the public restrooms throughout the hospital. Bathrooms in patient rooms are reserved for patients to protect their health. To locate a restroom, please ask a staff member or volunteer.
Smoking and Tobacco Use
Lake Regional Health System is committed to promoting health, which includes disease prevention. Because smoking is a fire and health hazard, smoking or the use of any tobacco products is not permitted anywhere in the hospital or on the grounds of all Lake Regional Health System-owned or -affiliated properties. This policy relates to all tobacco use, including smokeless tobacco and electronic cigarettes.
Vending machines offering beverages, snacks and healthy options are located throughout the hospital. They are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For locations, please ask a staff member or volunteer.
