Essential Item Drop Off

Essential items and special dietary food items can be dropped off for inpatients daily (7 days a week) between 9:00am – 9:00pm.

Screeners at the entrance will direct you to the centralized drop-off location at each hospital. Essential items must be:

  • Placed in a disposable bag
  • Food must be in disposable containers
  • All items must be clearly labeled with the patient’s full name and location in the hospital (level, unit and room number i.e. 3-C-231)

If you have been approved to visit with an inpatient by the care team and are coming for a scheduled, please follow the guidelines above to bring in essential items and drop them off with the screeners. Please do not bring in essential items directly to the unit or patient room.
