Being in the hospital is stressful. The Gumenick Suites emphasizes relaxation, creating a peaceful and soothing environment that promotes a comfortable recovery.

Patients and their families find their surroundings elegant and well-appointed, while accommodating state-of-the-art medical equipment. Each suite is equipped with wireless Internet access with a media system and a self-service kitchenette—complete with a coffee maker, microwave oven and mini-refrigerator stocked with sodas and juices. With rooms boasting extras such as two televisions, patients and their families are given every opportunity to rejuvenate themselves in style. Patients receive the daily newspaper with their breakfast each morning and are presented with a thick terry cloth bathrobe for their personal use during their stay and later at home.

That’s why patients and their guests may order from a selection of catered menus provided by a specially staffed gourmet kitchen. Available throughout the day at the patient’s request, meals are prepared to order and served on fine china with crystal and silver. Patients have the option of taking their meals and snacks in bed or dining at a linen-covered table in their suite with family and friends.

Loved ones and friends are also vital to a patient’s well-being and recovery. At the Gumenick Suites, family members are never restricted by formal visiting hours and guest rooms are available for the benefit of the patient’s overnight guests. A communal day room featuring an on-site fax machine, copier and media library is also available for the use of both patients and visitors.

If you require any special accommodations, the Gumenick Suites staff includes a full-time business manager, capable of handling any unique patient concerns.
