Thank you for choosing Gordon Hospital as your provider. We are committed to ensuring that you get the best, most appropriate healthcare while you are being treated here.
In this section of our website, you will find the information that you need to make your stay go as smoothly as possible, such as:
Admitting services is located at the main entrance of the hospital. We accept admissions 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week, before 7 p.m. After that time, admissions are accepted through the Emergency Center entrance. The nursing supervisor is available 24-hours-a-day to accept direct admissions. You will be requested to complete all necessary admission requirements. You can expedite the admitting process by pre-registering and taking care of any pre-admission testing your doctor has ordered.
To schedule an appointment, call the admissions department on weekdays between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. at 706.879.4741. A friend or relative may register for critically ill or emergency patients. If you have an advance directive, you will need to present it at the time of your admission. Some forms can only be signed by the patient or power of attorney (proof required).
Your Healthcare Team
Many people work as part of your healthcare team. Your physician directs your medical care and prescribes your treatment. Your nursing care is directed by experienced registered nurses that work closely with your physician to care for you. Licensed practical nurses, nursing assistants, technologists, and therapists, with extensive training in their fields, are only a few of the skilled professionals who give care, administer and analyze tests, provide rehabilitation and prescribed treatment, take x-rays, plan for your nutritional needs, and plan your discharge. If you have questions about your care, please direct any questions to the primary nurse, charge nurse, or your physician.
Spiritual care can be an important part of total healing. Our Chaplain and his team of volunteer chaplains make routine patient visits every day. You or your family may request a chaplain by calling the Chaplain's office at extension 2203, or by placing a request with your nursing staff. If you prefer, you can contact your own minister, rabbi, or priest.
Gordon Hospital encourages feedback regarding patients’ experiences. This information serves as an opportunity to improve our future care and services to you. “Share a Compliment” and “Share a Suggestion” cards are available throughout the hospital or you may request that a staff member provide you with one. Because we want to provide the best customer service to you and your family, every employee attends training through our The Whole Care Experience (TWCE) program.
Your satisfaction is so important that we actually measure it. In a few weeks, you may receive a call from our field research group. Using a scale of 1 to 5, you will be asked to rate your satisfaction with Gordon. Since your opinion counts, we hope you will take a few minutes to answer the questions our researcher asks. Our goal is to exceed your expectations during your stay with us. We strive for a score of 5, and we hope that you are completely satisfied.
