Visiting hours at WakeMed have been designed to compliment your rehabilitation program. It is through visits from family and friends that you get encouragement and reinforcement for continued recovery. There may be times that you are not available for visitors because of your therapy schedule.
Because the therapy program cannot be interrupted, please have your visitors check with your nurse to determine the most convenient times for a visit. Generally, you will be available to visit Monday through Friday after 4:00 p.m., and on weekends after noon.
We look forward to your family and friends involvement in your recovery, and welcome any suggestions that they may have regarding your rehabilitation stay.
Your room is equipped with a telephone and color television. Most rooms are shared, so you will likely have the company of a roommate. A limited number of private rooms are available for patients with special needs or whose medical condition may require privacy.
Mail and Flowers
Your mail and flowers will be delivered to your room each day. Your mail should be addressed:
WakeMed Rehab - (your room number)
P.O. Box 14465
Raleigh, NC 27620-4465
You will have your own phone in your room. To make calls within the hospital, you do not need to dial the 350-prefix, simply the five digit extension number. If you need assistance, dial "08000" to reach the hospital operator. To make outside local calls, dial 9 + the local number. There is no charge for local calls. To make long distance calls, dial 9 and then you will need to use your calling card.
