Family & Friends
For Family/Friends Waiting During the Procedure
For a hospitalized patient, your family/friends may wait in your hospital room until your return. Family/friends of same-day procedure patients may wait in the Heart Center lobby or in the Heart Center's 2nd Floor Family Waiting room.We suggest that they have something to read such as a book, newspaper or magazine to help pass the time.
Family/friends may want to bring a jacket or wear layers to be comfortable. The temperature in the building may vary at different times of the year.
A coffee bar is located in the Heart Center Lobby and operates Monday through Friday, 6 am to 1 pm. There are vending machines in the Heart Center lobby so it may be helpful to have change for the machines.
There is also a cafeteria, Café 3000, on the hospital's campus. A coffee shop and gift shop are located within the main lobby of the hospital. The staff at the Heart Center's check-in desk can direct you to these.
