Our visiting policy is flexible because we believe family and friends are integral to the physical and emotional well-being of our patients.

Please understand there may be times where visitors may be asked to temporarily leave a patient's room for testing, procedures, or other reasons. For specific visiting questions, please check with the patient care unit's clinical staff.

Any visitors coming after 8 p.m. must stop at the Greeter's Desk adjacent to the Emergency Care Center to receive a yellow identification sticker.

We want everyone to be completely satisfied at Sharon Regional. If anyone has any concerns about any aspect of a hospital stay, please contact our Gold Care Line at 724-983-7373 or ask to speak to a patient care manager.

At Your Request®---Patient Dining

Sharon Regional offers At Your Request - Room Service Dining®, which is the leading health care room service program in North America. This is very different than the conventional method of food services found in most hospitals, it is very similar to hotel room service, but with a clinical advantage. Our pledge is to provide you and your family with the quality service you deserve.

Meal service is continuously provided throughout the day from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m with patients placing their own meal orders via telephone by dialing SERV (7378) from their room. A room service associate will take their order, and within 45 minutes their food will be personally delivered to their room. Patients make their own decisions for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks at any time from a menu of extensive selections. They order what they want, when they want it.

Through a sophisticated computer order system, the dieticians and trained technicians receiving the orders take provisions for special or restricted diets into account. As a result, a patient will not receive something they should not eat due to diet or medication restrictions and simultaneously become educated to what often times is their new dietary guidelines to maintain and improve their health.

Guest trays are available for visitors and families. Our room service associate can assist you with pricing and ordering information.

Our Clinical Nutrition Staff of professionals provides sound nutritional advice for our inpatients as well as the community. Inpatient services include nutritional risk screening, in-depth nutrition assessment and consultation. Nutritional counseling is offered on an inpatient and outpatient basis.
