Contacting Patients

There are a number of ways you can contact patients at Piedmont Athens Regional. They include eGreetings (notes delivered to patients' rooms), phone calls and mail.

Patient eGreetings

You can send a card to a patient through our eGreetings system.

Phone Calls

Patients may receive calls in their rooms from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. To reach a patient, dial 706-475 and the room number (except in Labor and Delivery). If you do not know the room number, you can call 706-475-3642, and the Information Desk will transfer the call.

Due to possible interference with medical equipment operation, you may be asked not to use your cellphone in certain areas. Please make every effort to be courteous to those around you when using a cellphone to not disrupt patient care and other visitors.

Flowers and Mail

Flowers will be delivered to patients' rooms by area florists during the day. Patients in the Intensive Care Units may not have flowers or balloons in their rooms.

Mail will be delivered Monday through Saturday and forwarded to patients after they leave. To mail a patient at Piedmont Athens Regional, use the address 1199 Prince Avenue, Athens, Georgia 30606-2793.
