  • Services for Patients

    • Food and Meals
      Our professional registered dietitians are available to provide your child with nutritious, balanced meals. They work with nurses and doctors to plan the appropriate diet for each child. Each morning your child will receive a menu for the following day. Nursing staff members will be happy to help in making selections. If your child is on a special diet please discourage friends from bringing in food from outside. Meals are served at the following times:
      • Breakfast: 7:45 a.m.
      • Lunch: 11:45 a.m.
      • Dinner: 4:45 p.m.
    • Gift Shop
      The gift shop is located in the main lobby and is operated by the hospital auxiliary for the convenience of patients, families, visitors and staff. The shop provides a selection of fine gift items, fresh flowers, books, games, magazines and candy.
    • Social Work
      The social work department offers professional counseling to patients and their families that is related to the medical and social needs that accompany an illness. Social workers are skilled professionals and are trained in providing supportive services necessary after discharge from the hospital. Patients, physicians or family members may request assistance from the social work department.
    • Medications
      All medications your child receives as a patient have been prescribed by their doctor. Please leave your child's other medicines at home. The hospital pharmacy will supply the medications ordered by your child's doctor during their stay. Upon discharge you will receive a pamphlet with specific instructions about your child's medications.
    • Mail Deliveries
      All mail will be delivered on a daily basis (except on Sundays) directly to your child's room.
    • Tests and Treatments
      The tests and treatments your child will have depend on his/her individual needs. Many tests and treatments are performed in your child's room. However, when special procedures are needed, your child will be brought to the appropriate department by wheelchair or stretcher. Parents are welcome to accompany their child. All test results are reported to your doctor, who will discuss the results with you.
    • Hospital Volunteers
      Newport Hospital takes pride in our hospital volunteers who contribute their time and services to the well-being of others. Their reward lies in the satisfaction of a job well done. Volunteers provide the following services: assisting with admitting procedures, transporting for tests and discharges, delivery of flowers and gifts.
    • Hospital Chaplain
      Newport Hospital recognizes the spiritual needs of our patients. A hospital chaplain will be available to assist in your individual religious needs.
    • Educational Needs
      The nursing staff will assist in providing referrals for children who may be absent from school for more than three weeks due to illness.

    Remember, if you have any questions concerning your child's hospitalization please feel free to ask your pediatrician or one of the pediatric nurses. For more information about pediatric services at Newport Hospital, please call 401-845-1710.
