Patients should bring an updated medication list to the hospital as well as the contact information for their outpatient doctors and therapists. Many patients wish to bring personal belongings with them to the hospital. We recommend bringing a set or two of comfortable clothes. Basic toiletries are provided.
We advise patients to keep valuables and money at home as the hospital will not assume liability for misplaced or stolen items.
Please note that all belongings brought to the hospital will be carefully searched for items that pose a safety risk. You may bring permitted items to the facility in a suitcase or duffel bag, but your luggage will be securely stored during your stay.
This list is subject to change at any time. A current list of prohibited items is posted at the Canyon View facility entrance.
