During your stay at Morristown Medical Center, we aim to offer all the comforts of home for you and your visitors, including the following:
All patient rooms have telephones with access to free local and domestic long distance calls.
Patient mail and gifts are delivered daily to patient rooms in the late afternoons. If a patient has been discharged, mail will be forwarded to his or her home. For best service, please ask family and friends to address mail as follows:
Morristown Medical Center
100 Madison Avenue
Morristown, NJ 07962
Morristown Medical Center offers an onsite post office, which sells books of stamps and will assist you in sending and receiving packages and mail. Please ask for the location and hours.
Volunteers deliver the Daily Record free of charge to patients daily. The Star-Ledger, The New York Times and USA Today are available for purchase in the Motown Café.
Morristown Medical Center's Medical Library offers reading materials and the Consumer Library Information Prescription (CLIP), which provides printed materials prepared by a medical librarian based on search requests.
Patients of Morristown Medical Center and Atlantic Rehabilitation may request salon services by appointments only, with permission from a physician or nurse. Patients are required to pay at the time of the service. Please see your unit representative for details.
Patients can request teletypewriters (TTY machines) from floor nurses for use in their rooms.
Cyracom translator phones are available on all nursing units. Each phone has two handsets – one for the patient, and one for the hospital staff member. The interpreter translates between the staff member and the patient. More than 150 languages are available. Sign language interpreters are also offered. In addition, Morristown Medical Center offers Deaf-Talk, enabling patients to communicate with hospital staff via certified medical sign language interpreters on a video screen. This service is available 24 hours a day.
We offer TV sets for entertainment and comforts of home. We also offer numerous hospital-provided education programs on a large variety of conditions, surgeries and medical situations through the Patient Video Education Service. Headphones and closed caption viewing are also available. In an effort to encourage all patients to rest, our TVs turn off automatically at 11:00pm. You may turn your TV back on after 11:00pm, but we encourage the use of headphones to help others rest. Please be aware of your television’s volume at all times in an effort to promote a healing culture for all.
