This information may be helpful when you wish to communicate with a resident who is an inpatient at UF Health Shands or at North Florida Regional Medical Center.
(The VA has NOT been unintentionally omitted. Rather, it has been unable to provide us with any instructions for communicating with patients there.)

UF Health Shands

For patient information:

Call 352-265-0111 and provide the patient's name. Although you will be given the patient's room number, depending upon the patient's condition, you will have one of three results: (1) You will be connected directly to the patient's room. (2) You will be connected to the nurses' station for the correct floor and the nurse will connect you to the patient's room. Or (3) You will be connected to the correct floor but the nurse will not connect you to the patient's room. You might also learn whether the patient has been discharged.
