Planetree Component: Family, Friends & Social Support

At Enloe Medical Center, we believe in empowering patients and their family and friends, or care partners, through information and education. This partnership supports patients and their care partners in actively participating in their care.

Patient-directed Visitation

When family and friends visit their loved one at the hospital, they are supporting the patient’s emotional and social needs. Enloe allows and encourages 24-hour, patient-directed visitation while considering the patient’s physical health care needs.

Most patient rooms at Enloe are private with furnishing that provides comfort and privacy for family. See details on visiting hours.

Care Partners

Enloe’s Care Partner Program is a patient-centered approach to care that involves a family member or friend as part of the health care team. It creates a three-way partnership between the patient, health care team and selected Care Partner. This program has the goal of improving communication, education and the physical, emotional, and spiritual care of our patients.

What Does a Care Partner Do?

The Care Partner is invited to participate in care as agreed upon with the patient and the hospital staff.  Especially important is Care Partner involvement in education and discharge planning, which increases the likelihood of a successful transition back to the patient’s usual activities. The level of Care Partner involvement is specific to the particular patient’s needs and flexible to accommodate the interest and ability of the Care Partner.
