Patient Care and Satisfaction
Memorial Hospital is committed to providing excellent patient care. One way we accomplish this is by providing outstanding nursing care to patients.
Patients, family members, and the public may request nurse staffing schedules from Memorial Hospital's nursing administration office. Please contact nursing administration Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at:
- Memorial Hospital Belleville: (618) 257-5210
- Memorial Hospital Shiloh: (618) 607-3213
To obtain information at other times than those listed, please call the hospital operator and ask for the nursing supervisor.
An advance directive allows you to provide instructions on your healthcare in the event that you can no longer make these decisions. Make future health decisions now.
Our Service Evaluation Program
Please tell us about your experience. After discharge, you might receive a phone call to talk about your hospital stay. Memorial wants to be the best. If someone took excellent care of you, please let us know. Thank you for trusting us to care for you.
