Patients and Visitors

Whether you’re a patient or a visitor, you deserve a positive, compassionate and healing experience. From the moment you arrive to the time you leave, you’ll find the support, resources and information you need.

What to know before your visit

If you are scheduled for surgery, use St. Mary's Pre-admission Testing program (PAT) so all preparations for your surgery are taken care of in one visit. After your doctor has scheduled your surgery, call 970-298-2084 (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) to make an appointment with PAT.

If you plan to have a baby at St. Mary’s, pre-register any time during your pregnancy by completing the online labor and delivery pre-registration form or by calling 970-298-2229.

When you are admitted to St. Mary’s Medical Center, please bring:

  • The medications you’re currently taking, including notes on the dose and frequency. Your medical condition may not allow you to take certain medications, even those you usually take every day. Your doctor will decide which medications you need while you are here.
  • Picture identification, such as a driver's license, state ID card or passport.
  • Your insurance card.
  • Personal items to make your hospital room feel more like home, such as one or two small framed pictures, a pillow or throw, your slippers and robe.

Please do not bring valuables such as jewelry, credit cards and cash. If you do, they will be stored in a safe for safekeeping, but St. Mary’s is unable to replace them if lost or stolen. Do not bring pocket knives or weapons.

Visiting St. Mary’s Medical Center

Due to COVID-19, we have temporary visitor restrictions in place.

We provide a smoke-free campus, inside and outside, for our patients, guests and employees.

Open communication

We encourage you to be involved in your healthcare. Feel free to ask any member of your healthcare team questions such as:

  • What is your name?
  • What role do you play on my healthcare team?
  • What is the medication you are giving me and what is it for?
  • What can I expect during this procedure?
  • What will this procedure tell you and why is that important?
  • What is my diagnosis?
  • What plan of care do you recommend for me?

Patient advocates

If you have concerns, questions or compliments about your care, our patient advocates are here to listen and help. They also can provide important information for you and your family about advance care planning, patient rights, ethical decision support and interpreters. Ask a member of your care team to connect you with a patient advocate.
