Family-Centered Care at Sharp Memorial Hospital

At Sharp Memorial Hospital patients' families and loved ones are encouraged to participate in caregiving. We provide comfortable spaces, education, refreshments and other amenities to welcome families and guests into the healing process.

Family Lounges
Located on every floor, our living-room style Family Lounges offer a relaxing atmosphere for guests to gather when not visiting with a patient. Services include:

Each Family Lounge at Sharp Memorial Hospital offers comfortable seating and wireless Internet access.
  • A coffee bar in the main lobby 
  • Beverages and snack area in each Family Lounge
  • Concierge services to help visitors find hotels, transportation and other services
  • Free wireless Internet access 
  • Private consultation rooms for patients and families to meet with physicians or other caregivers

Family Resource Center
Integrated within each Family Lounge is a resource center staffed by specially trained volunteers who can provide information to patients, guests and family members about particular health issues, treatments and community resources. Our goal is to provide family members and friends with the tools and information they need to care for patients during the healing process.
