Safety and security are top priorities at Lakeside. We ask every visitor to sign in. Visitors get a paper ID with their picture on it. This helps our security keep everyone in the hospital safer.
We want our visitors to be comfortable. The waiting area is at the front of the hospital. It is close to the cafeteria. Visitors can join us for a meal in our dining area—or on the patio.
Meeting rooms also are available. The rooms can be used for classes, seminars, lectures, and other community events.
Entering the Facility
Safety is as an important part of staying healthy. Our hospital uses a visitor ID tracking system to keep everyone safer.
Visitors must show a photo ID to enter the hospital. Then a Fast-Pass ID Badge will be made. It is a short process.
To keep all patients safe, comfortable and well-rested, our hospital set visiting hours and guidelines.
