The NBRHC is currently planning the replacement and upgrade of our Patient Entertainment System (PES) this includes Phone and Bedside Television Services. The current system, installed by a third-party vendor, is entering its 9th year of operation and nearing the end of its useful life.
As we work towards a replacement system, we want to include the most important voice, and that is yours. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey below and help us in our decision making. Thank You!
Patient Entertainment System Service Desk is available from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. daily and can be reached by lifting the phone on your bedside unit or calling ext. 3380.
Effective Monday January 29, 2018, Credit Card payments can no longer be processed on the bedside televisions. Television/Phone payments can only be made through the Main Street Gift Shop during their regular hours or at Switchboard.
