Visitor Info

Parking

Free patient and visitor parking is located directly in front of the building.

Calls to Patients

With the hospital's new phone system, patients can receive calls directly, rather than going through the hospital switchboard. Friends and family can call a patient's room directly by dialing 217-357-85 and then the last two digits of the patient's room number. The room number is located on the phone nearest to the patient's bed. Please call between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. to allow undisturbed time for sleep.

Gift Shop

The Gift Shop, located near the main entrance, is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 12p.m. to 4 p.m.

Pastoral Care

For some people, pastoral guidance and prayer helps to enhance treatment and recovery. Memorial Hospital's pastoral staff consists of clergy members of various faiths who are available to meet with patients upon request for spiritual counseling, guidance and prayer. Patients who are hospitalized are encouraged to invite their minister, priest, rabbi or other spiritual counselor to visit with them during their stay, or to request a visit from a hospital chaplain.

Chapel

There is a nonsectarian chapel near the entrance of the hospital, across from the welcome desk. The chapel is open seven days a week, 24 hours a day, to all patients and visitors.

Wireless Internet

Wireless internet is available for your convenience in all locations of the hospital.

Visitor Overnight Stay

All patient rooms are designed with a spacious window seat. The window seat can be converted into a bed, if needed by family members.
