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.
Breakfast: 7:30–10:30 am
Lunch: 11:15 am–1:40 pm
Snack: 3:00–4:30 pm
Dinner: 5:00–6:30 pm
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.
The Maintenance Department, at extension 5683, can help with any TV problems.
Wireless Internet access is available throughout the hospital to help patients, family, friends and co-workers keep in touch via a personal laptop computer. Patients with questions about telephone, TV, radio, computer or Internet should speak with their nurse or care manager.
Mail is delivered to patients’ rooms daily. Friends and family writing to a Bryn Mawr Rehab patient should address mail with the patient’s full name and room number as well as our complete address:
Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital
414 Paoli Pike
Malvern, PA 19355-3300
Patients can leave outgoing mail at the nurse’s station in their unit. Following discharge, any patient mail arriving at Bryn Mawr Rehab will be forwarded to the home address.
To feel your best, you want to look your best. We offer hair care services by licensed professionals on a fee-for-service basis. Patients can ask their nurse or unit coordinator for more information.
Notary Public services are available at no charge for patients. Care managers or unit coordinators can arrange for notary services.
Our gift shop is located at the hospital’s main entrance. A wide variety of gift and convenience items is available there, including jewelry, greeting cards, candy, toiletries and seasonal items. For hours and more information, patients and visitors can dial the gift shop’s extension, 2455.
CarePages are an innovative way for patients, friends and family to stay
connected over the Internet during the rehabilitation process.

CarePages are private, personalized web pages that allow patients and their loved ones to stay in touch before, during and after a hospitalization. CarePages are free to patients at each Main Line Health hospital—Bryn Mawr, Bryn Mawr Rehab, Lankenau, Paoli, Riddle and The Home Care Network—and comply with all patient privacy regulations. The free CarePages service allows users to set up a unique web page/online journal where they can:
With a CheerGram, loved ones outside the
hospital can give patients a boost. Users can select any of the designs,
fill in a message and the required information, and the message will be
printed and delivered by a Bryn Mawr Rehab staff member or volunteer.
CheerGrams are delivered Monday through Friday between 7:00 am and 4:00 pm. CheerGrams sent after 4:00 pm on Friday may not be delivered until Monday morning.
Patients who want to see a member of the clergy during their stay can
contact the Chaplaincy Line at extension 2949.
Those who want to attend religious services can refer to the schedule of non-denominational Sunday services provided upon admission.
A Catholic Eucharistic minister is available on Fridays, and Catholic services are held monthly.
A Meditation Room, located on the first floor of the hospital, is open to patients, family and clergy for quiet reflection and other spiritual needs.
At Bryn Mawr Rehab, we want all of our patients to be able to fully communicate their preferences and needs. Patients can contact their care manager for access to an interpreter.
Because the presence of loved ones is important to recovery, free on-site accommodations at The Laurels Family Center are available for out-of-town relatives and visitors of Bryn Mawr Rehab patients. For more information or to make a reservation, families can work with their care manager.
Amenities for guests of The Laurels include:
We also offer families a place to relax, play games (bring your own games or play the ones we have), watch movies (bring your own DVDs), read or take a break while your loved one is in therapy. The Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital Family Lounge, funded by Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Philadelphia Region, Inc., is open to patients and their families daily from 9 am–9 pm. In consideration for recovering patients and other families who are visiting, we respectfully request that children are supervised by an adult at all times when they are in the lounge.
If interested in hosting a private family party in the lounge, please contact the Case Manager Department at 484.596.5510 to reserve the space and arrange for table and chair set-up as needed. Food can be brought in for these special occasions, or you can arrange for catering by contacting the Dietary Department.
