Family Involvement-The Senior Treatment Unit

Family Involvement

Friends and family members are invited to visit during scheduled visiting hours for the Senior Treatment Unit. Friends and family can play an important role in your treatment. However, no contact with your family or others will be made without your signed consent. Limiting visitors to two people at a time is recommended; you may speak with your doctor if other visiting hours need to be arranged.

Visits by Clergy

Butler Hospital's chaplain is available to meet with you and your family members and can be reached at 401-455-6483. Clergy from outside of the hospital may visit their parishioners any time during the day or evening.
