Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital is a comfortable place not just for patients,
but for their loved ones too. We help ease the transition to life after
discharge with a range of convenient, home-like amenities.
All hospital visitors can purchase breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner
daily in our cafeteria. They are invited to eat in the cafeteria or
bring food items to the patients’ rooms. Vending machines, located next
to the cafeteria, are also available 24 hours a day.
Bryn Mawr Rehab patients can eat in their own rooms, or if they’re
independent enough and can feed themselves, they can visit the Patient
Dining Room on the hospital’s first floor, open for lunch and dinner.
Family members and friends who are visiting inpatients, either for a day
time visit or as an overnight guest staying in The
Laurels, our visitor’s residence, are also welcome to dine in the
Patient Dining Room.
Telephones are provided in each room. As a courtesy to other patients,
phone calls should take place between 7:30 am and 9:30 pm. Local
telephone service is provided free of charge. Calls can be made by
dialing 9, the area code, and the number. Long distance calls can be
made collect or with a calling card, which are available for purchase in
the gift shop. Hearing assistive devices and TDD phones are available.
Cell phones may not be used in patient-care areas.
TV service is available in all patient rooms and in public areas. A
channel listing will be provided to all patients upon admission, and it
is also available on Channel 2.
Personal radios are allowed in patient rooms, as well as MP3 players and
similar devices, but headphones should be used, or volume kept on low as
a courtesy to other patients. Patients watching TV or listening to the
radio or music after 11:00 pm must use headphones.
