Food & Nutrition Services As a patient, your doctor will prescribe a diet that is carefully planned to fit your individual needs and to help you recover quickly. A registered dietitian is responsible for your nutritional care and participates as an active member of your health care team.

Smoking Policy Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the LGMC-owned or controlled properties (like the Burdin Riehl Center and Physician Office Building), including parking lots, garages, and sidewalks. Patients who find it difficult to comply with the no smoking policy should speak with their physician or with the nursing supervisor to discuss alternatives. We also offer advice and services for smoking cessation counseling.
Banking An automatic teller machine is available in the main lobby of LGMC.
Mail Service Hospital volunteers deliver incoming mail daily to patient rooms. Give outgoing mail to your nurse, who will see that it is picked up promptly and mailed.
Special Needs Any special care that handicapped patients may need will be taken care of by the nurse manager. Phone amplifiers are available to patients and visitors who have difficulty hearing and TTY (Teletypewriter) systems are available for the phones of hearing-impaired patients. Hearing-impaired patients may request "closed captioned” equipment for television sets in their rooms. There is also a special communication system for patients who do not speak English.
