Galveston Campus Amenities
Each patient room is equipped with a television. The program guide can be
found on Channel 7 in English, and on Channel 42 in Spanish. All channels can
be accessed at no charge. If your television is not working properly, please
ask a member of your health care team for help.
Flowers will be delivered to patient rooms, except for patients in our

are difficult to deliver and must be removed upon discharge.
