Licking Memorial Health Systems - Measurably different...for your health
Communications
At Licking Memorial Hospital (LMH) we realize the importance of effective communication while you are under our care. We offer the following communication services in order to provide patients the most positive experience possible. 
Telephone
Each patient room is equipped with a telephone and a direct dial number. Please give your phone number to family and friends so they can call you directly. Please be considerate of your neighbors.
  • Local calls: dial “8” and then the phone number – includes: Alexandria, Buckeye Lake, Johnstown, Kirkersville, and Pataskala 
  • Long-distance calls: must be placed as collect calls, billed to your home telephone or charged to your long-distance calling card
  • Cell phones are permitted in patient rooms
NOTE: If you receive a fast busy signal while trying to place an outgoing call, you could be experiencing an “all lines busy” situation. Please hang up and try your call again in a few minutes. If you continue to receive this signal, dial “0” for assistance.
Hearing/Language Interpretation
To ensure effective communication with patients and/or their companions who are deaf, hard of hearing, do not speak English or have limited English proficiency, we offer American Sign Language interpreters, assistive interpretation devices and language translation services at no cost. Please let your nurse or other Hospital healthcare provider know if these services are needed.
Wireless
Free wireless Internet access is available to patients and visitors at various locations throughout the Hospital.  A brochure may be requested to assist with any questions users may have.
