Your Telephone
Telephones are provided in all patient rooms except the Intensive Care Unit. Local calls can be made at no charge.

If you would like to call another department located with the hospital, dial only the extension number (the last four (4) digits of the phone number.)

To place an outside call, first dial 9 and then the number. If your friends or family would like to call your room directly, they can dial 455 + the number listed on your telephone. Your nurse will give you the number during your initial assessment. The main Hospital telephone number is 304-455-8000.

If you would like to place a long distance call, dial 0 and the Hospital switchboard operator will place the call for you. Long distance calls can be made as collect calls or billed to your home number or a calling card.
