Patient Handbook

We have created a new patient handbook that is focused on inspirational values and beliefs. You can flip through it in the viewfinder above. However, we acknowledge that it is still important to have a comprehensive online handbook to give our patients and their families answers to their most common questions, all in one place.

Our staff members are committed to your satisfaction. If you need anything at all, please ask your caregiver. Should we ever fall short of your expectations, or if you just want to compliment a member of our outstanding staff, call our Patient Hotline at (432) 221-2273 (CARE). May your stay with us be a time of healing and peace, and may you return to your normal activities as quickly as possible.

Patient Rights and Responsibilities

The success of any course of medical treatment depends on the quality of the relationship between the patient and the medical care providers. Lines of communication must remain open. The patient Bill of Rights will help you know what to expect during your stay. The Patient’s Responsibilities will help you know what is expected of you as a patient. If the patient is a minor or has a guardian, the rights and responsibilities of the patient transfer to the parent(s) or guardian.

Click here to download the Patient Rights and Responsibilities document. Please feel free to ask questions about any of these rights that you do not understand. If you have questions about these rights, please discuss them with your doctor or nurse or the hospital’s Patient Relations Department.
