Patients & Visitors

At Lincoln Health, our patients are more than names; they are our friends and neighbors. We are committed to meeting the health care needs of our county’s residents by providing seamless care throughout every stage of life with our network of facilities and comprehensive services.

Please review the resources below to prepare for your time with us at Lincoln Medical Center, whether you are a patient or a visitor. The information below is intended to help with some of our frequently asked questions and make your experience the best it can be.

For our patients, the LMC Patient Portal provides you access to your health information online at any time.

Our goal is to provide the best patient care. If, at any time, you have questions or concerns about the quality of care that you or a family member are receiving or have received at our hospital, do not hesitate to speak with your nurse or the nursing supervisor. If you feel that we didn’t resolve your issue, or you have feedback, please dial “0” on any hospital phone to contact the patient representative with your compliments, complaints or concerns.

Calling Patient Rooms/Phone Usage

Patient Information Desk:

If you know the room number of the patient you are calling, dial 438-1 + the three-digit room number.

Cell Phone Usage:
Cell phones are allowed in most areas of the hospital. Restricted areas are marked accordingly. If you must use your cell phone, please speak in a low voice so as not to disturb the privacy and comfort of other patients and visitors.
