Receiving Telephone Calls
Outside callers can reach any 4-digit patient room by calling (308) 865-CARE (2273) and then entering the patient's 4-digit room number. This number is also located on your phone, or in some instances, on the wall behind your bed.
Televisions with local cable and CHI Health Good Samaritan's own educational network are available in all patient rooms. If you are hearing impaired, closed-captioned television is available by asking your nurse. Please be considerate of others by lowering the volume or turning off your television at bedtime.
