Guest Services for Patients & Visitors
Rest is an important part of a patient’s healing process; however, Stringfellow Memorial Hospital realizes that visits from loved ones constitute “good medicine” as well. Visitors are encouraged to visit friends and family members while adhering to our most recent Visitation Guidelines. You may want to check in with the main desk prior to visiting to make sure your visits occur at the most appropriate time 7am-7pm, as of 2/15/21.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask by calling (256) 235-8900.
