Janesville Campus Will be a Comfortable Place for Patients, Family

St. Mary’s Janesville Hospital understands that treating patients also means treating their families well. That’s why it has designed rooms to be private, spacious and accommodating to visitors. Each room, including the ICU, will have a pull-out bed for a family member or significant other. Extra bench seating is included in each room for visitors.

Waiting for a loved one to come out of a procedure is stressful. That’s why the hospital will provide restaurant-style pagers so people can visit the cafeteria and gift shop or stretch their legs until the patient is in Recovery. The Surgery and OB lounges will feature quiet areas as well as space for television. When it’s time to meet with the physician, families can enjoy privacy and comfort in nearby consultation rooms.

The lobby-level cafeteria’s floor-to-ceiling windows bathe the space with natural light. An outdoor terrace (and delicious food) will provide families with a great place to gather and unwind. Nearby, the Chapel offers space for reflection and the Health Resource Library will provide computer access and health information.

For those needing some fresh air, our beautiful grounds will feature a Healing Garden and a series of trails for walking and biking. Indoors and out, caring for patients and families during stressful times is our privilege and priority.
