From pediatrics to geriatrics, the HCH healthcare team provides compassionate,

needs. Recently receiving an Excellence in Patient Care Award that recognized
staff's promptness in responding to patients' needs, patients

Your physician will explain and answer questions regarding all medical
testing, treatment and procedures. You or your legal representative must
sign authorization forms prior to treatment or the performance of procedures.
A parent or legal guardian must sign for minor children.
Care conferences, an interdisciplinary group meeting between caregivers,
patients and families are held as needed to give patients and their families
the opportunity to be involved in care decisions and planning.
A Discharge Planner is available on-site at Henry County Hospital to assist
patients in making a smooth transition into post-hospital care. The Discharge
Planner works to recognize and attend to the psychosocial needs of patients
and their families during hospitalization and through discharge. Other
services available include referrals for rehabilitation or nursing home
care, home health, home delivered meals or other services as needed.
With the room service approach patients are offered the freedom of ordering
their meal from a restaurant style menu, at any time throughout the day.
There is no limit to the amount of times a patient can order throughout
each day. Patients' family members are welcome to eat in the room
with the patients as socialization and companionship are proven to promote
healing, as well as better nutrition. Dietitians also play a vital role
in the room service approach. Patients receive education from a dietitian
on what foods will help aide them on their path to wellness while in the
hospital and at home.
