One of our goals at UC Health is to provide a pleasant and healing environment for our guests. We work hard to ensure that patients have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Visitors are encouraged to stop at the information desk in the main lobby to receive a patient room number. To protect the confidentiality of patients, nurses and staff may be limited in the information they can provide.
