Advance Directives & Living Wills
For your convenience, an automated teller machine, provided by BB&T, is located in the main lobby next to the gift shop.
Mail and Flowers
Your mail and flowers will be delivered to you each day by a Centra Southside Community Hospital volunteer. Mail received after you are discharged will be forwarded to your home address. You may send mail from your room while you in the hospital. You may give the mail to your nurse who will send it to the switchboard.
Notary Public services are available. For assistance, please tell your nurse that you need the services of a Notary Public. Common things that are notarized within the hospital are Living Wills and Power of Attorney. The notaries are also hospital employees, therefore if they are not comfortable notarizing something the family will need to procure notary services.
Interpreters and Language Line
Interpreters are available for the hearing impaired and for those do not speak English as a primary language. Please contact your nurse if you are in need of any of these services.
Centra Southside Community Hospital understands that healthcare choices often involve difficult and complex decisions, and that questions or differences of opinion may arise which cannot be easily resolved. Therefore, we have a committee to help patients, their family members, and healthcare providers discuss these issues. Please tell your nurse if you have an issue for the Ethics Committee.
