Your Room

At UMC, we want your stay here to be as comfortable as possible. Our hospital was designed to promote a healing environment that puts your needs first. All rooms offer large windows to allow for natural light and scenic views. The campus features lush landscaping and serene pools to help patients relax. For behavioral health patients, their rooms include color-adjusting lighting designed to provide mood support. No matter where you stay at UMC, know that we are putting you first.

Room assignments

When you are admitted to the hospital, your room will be assigned based on your diagnosis and the bed availability that day.

Your hospital bed

Hospital beds can be adjusted by using the controls. Should you need assistance, please call your nurse. We ask that visitors not sit on your bed to keep outside germs off your sheets to prevent infection

Room temperature

All rooms in the hospital are centrally heated and air conditioned. If the temperature is not comfortable, please notify your nurse.

Calling your nurse

A nurse call button is located on each patient’s bedside. When the button is pressed, the nursing station is alerted that you need assistance, and a light flashes above your door. A staff member will respond to your signal as soon as possible.

Television

Television sets are provided free of charge in each room. The remote control is at bedside. Please be considerate of other patients by playing TV sets softly and by turning off your set at bedtime.
