Contact A Patient
You can contact a patient by phone or by sending them a message:
Call 770-867-3400 and dial “7” and the appropriate Room Number.
You can submit a message for a patient using a simple contact form. The message will be printed and delivered by our hospital staff.
Flowers may be delivered directly to the front desk for all patients except those receiving care in the intensive care unit. A hospital volunteer will deliver flowers, packages and gifts to patients. Please check out our gift shop located on the first floor for assorted gift items.
Gifts and flowers are welcome at Northeast Georgia Medical Center but please be aware:
ICU, oncology, and immunocompromised patients may receive gifts but not flowers or plants. This is due to the fact that flowers and plants can harbor mold and water-borne organisms which could cause additional infection and we want your loved one to have the cleanest and safest environment for healing.
Volunteers assist with a variety of non-medical duties and provide kind and compassionate support to patients, family members, and visitors.
