Contact a Patient

Contact a patient by phone

To contact a patient at the Hospital, you will need the patient's full, correct name. Call our Patient Information line at 215-590-1000 and the operator will give you the patient's hospital room phone number. Please note that the operator will not provide the phone number if the patient’s parent requests it not be given out.

Under no circumstances will the operator disclose information about a patient's medical status, room number or any other personal information.
