BELFAST – Ever had a friend or family member in the hospital and when you called to check on him, you woke him up or disturbed him as he was being examined by his doctor? You felt terrible because all you were trying to do was let the patient know you were thinking of him and were available to help in any way.
Because we know that kind words and thoughts can brighten someone‚Äôs day when they are in the hospital, Waldo County General Hospital has a new email message service that should help eliminate that problem.
The service is available on the hospital‚Äôs website. Go to www.wcgh.org and click on the ‚ÄúEmail a Patient‚ÄĚ button. Fill out the form including your message and then push the submit button. The message will then be delivered to a hospital inpatient by an Aid volunteer.
The patient email site is checked on Monday through Friday so messages submitted over the weekend may not be delivered until the following Monday. Please keep in mind that we are only able to receive and deliver messages at this point and are not able to provide a response from the patient.
If you prefer, patients may be contacted by telephone by calling the main switchboard at¬† 338-2500. The mailing address for patients is Waldo County General Hospital, attn: name of patients, P.O. Box 287, Belfast, ME 04915.
