What will the hospital room be like?
If you're coming in for an overnight (or longer) stay, we have shared and single rooms. We give people single rooms based on their medical needs. On occasion, you may need to share a room with patients of both genders, but wherever possible, we co-locate people of the same gender and are sensitive to your needs and preferences.
