Visitors and Telephone Enquiries

We encourage visiting, as it plays an important role in your care and recovery. The Information Desk, located in the Acute Care Wing lobby, is staffed by Hospitals Auxiliary of Bermuda volunteers, who will assist in locating patients. Visitors and callers are asked to identify a patient by name when phoning or coming to the Information Desk. The receptionist will confirm the patient’s admission and location. Inquiries concerning a patient’s condition will be transferred to the unit, where the nurse in charge may provide further information.
