Gift Shop, Pastoral Care and Other Services
Desert Springs Hospital offers a variety of special services to make your stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
The gift shop is located past the main lobby on the first floor of the hospital, where cards, flowers, candy and assorted gifts, as well as books and magazines can be purchased. The gift shop is managed by the hospital's Volunteer Auxiliary, which donates funds to local charities, organizations and sponsors the employee scholarship program.
The Gift Shop hours are:
- Monday - Saturday: 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
- Sunday: 7:00 a.m. - Noon
A hospital stay can affect more than your physical well-being, it can affect your emotional, social and spiritual well-being, as well. Desert Springs Hospital has quiet rooms and a chapel on the second floor. Books on spiritual healing and guidance are available, as well as other uplifting reading materials.
To schedule a visit with a clergy member, please call 369-7669 or 369-7528.
Volunteers will bring the library cart, featuring both books and magazines, to patient rooms.
For the Hearing Impaired
We realize some of our patients are hearing impaired and we offer sign language interpreters and other resources to aid you with your communication needs.
We realize many of our patients speak languages other than English and we are happy to provide interpreters. If we cannot provide you an in-house interpreter, we have access to language services. Please talk to your nurse or dial 0 for the hospital operator if you need assistance in this area.
