Calling a Patient

Each of the patient rooms has a direct extension telephone number. To contact a patient using the four-digit telephone extension number, contact the main switchboard at:

570-421-4000 and select #3 

After the answering system connects and you hear the message. Then input the four-digit extension number to call the room directly.

If you don't know the four-digit extension number, you can obtain it by calling the Patient Room and Information line at:

570-476-3367 from 9:00am to 8:30pm 

The volunteer operators at this desk will provide the extension telephone number for you to use in the future, and will connect you to the room. At other times, you can call the main switchboard for a room extension number.

In order for our patients to get the rest they need, patient telephones are turned off at night at: 

  • 9:00pm - Maternity and Pediatrics 
  • 10:00pm - All other floors
  • 7:00am - Telephone service resumes again
