Find the perfect gift.
From snacks to flowers, our gift shops have everything you need. Complimentary delivery to patient rooms is also provided.
Please note that for health reasons patients in our intensive care, oncology and transplant units cannot receive live plants or flowers. This includes rooms 101 through 130, 201 through 224, 301 through 324 and 501 through 532. Additionally, patients in the intensive care unit — rooms 201 through 224, and 301 through 324 — cannot receive balloons, unless made of Mylar. Our gift shop staff can assist you with the selection of an alternative gift, or you may arrange for flowers to be delivered to the patient's home upon discharge.
