Free WiFi, Cable TV, and In-Room Local Calling
While you’re healing, there’s no need to feel cut off from the rest of the world. And there’s no need to be bored, either. Your room includes free local calling, WiFi, and TV services. You can use your in-room telephone by dialing 9 followed by the number you wish to call. For a number outside our local area code, dial 9, then 0, followed by the area code and number. After the tone, dial your credit-card number to pay for the long-distance call. To reach the operator, simply dial 0. If your loved ones want to call your room from the hospital, they can dial 7 plus your room number.
Relax while you're here by watching TV. Your room has free cable. Operate the TV via the remote attached to your bed. If you have questions, your nurse can help.
Pastoral Care and Chapels
As a faith-based organization, we know that when you’re going through health challenges, a little spiritual boost goes a long way. Our pastoral team is here to serve you by lending a listening ear, providing spiritual counsel, and praying with you. We’re also happy to connect you with a leader from your own religious community. To speak with a chaplain, call the Chaplain’s Office at extension 2203, or ask one of your nurses.
When you need a peaceful place to contemplate, pray, or relax in a healing environment, you’ll find it in one of our onsite meditation spaces. The Chapel of Hope, North Chapel, Garden of Hope, and Meditation Room offer spiritual refuge and a place for healing. Feel free to attend our daily devotional services. Our full list of spiritual resources includes:
- Devotionals in The Chapel of Hope: Wednesdays at 9 am.
- Spiritual Emphasis Week: Once a Year.
- Support Groups for tobacco cessation, cancer and caregivers, and grief recovery
Hospital Visiting Hours
Your loved ones are so important to your healing. We want them to feel welcome here. Most areas of the hospital hold open visiting hours, which means they can stop by at any time. Ask your nurse about specific visiting hours. If you're in the ICU, your loved ones can visit any time except between 6:30 am to 8:30 am and between 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.
- Free Parking
You’ll find free, convenient hospital parking for patients and visitors in front of the north and east entrances. Special parking is available for Emergency Center patients near the emergency entrance.
- More Patient Resources to Help You Heal
Our all-encompassing care doesn’t end after you leave our hospital. We offer the following resources to help you keep healing:
As you prepare to leave our hospital, a case manager will meet with you and/or your loved ones to help you plan your future care. They’ll connect you with community resources like rehabilitation centers, care equipment like crutches or an oxygen tank, and anything else you may need. You can reach a case manager at any time by dialing extension 2452.

- Pajamas, Robe, Rubber-Soled Slippers
- Personal Toiletries

Because we can’t guarantee the safety of your personal items, we suggest leaving valuables at home.
- Pastoral Care
A hospital stay can be an unexpected, anxious and a lonely time, not only for loved ones, but family and friends as well. AdventHealth Gordon knows that your spiritual care is also an important part of the healing process. That’s why members of the Department of Pastoral Care are available to you and your loved ones during your time in the hospital, providing you with spiritual care and support.
Contact a Chaplain
Patients, their family members or friends can request a visit from a chaplain, and we are also available to assist clergy or other pastors coming to visit their congregants.
A hospital stay can bring many visits and services from multiple medical providers. We know it’s hard to plan ahead for an emergency hospital visit, but if you have a scheduled health care service that requires a hospital stay, we recommend contacting your anticipated health care practitioners within the hospital to confirm they participate with your insurance provider. You can also get information about billing practices and an estimate for your upcoming services ahead of time. This will help you avoid any unexpected challenges and fees.
