Fort Sanders Regional’s security department is onsite 24/7 to assist patients, visitors and staff.
Your safety is our highest priority. Please report any suspicious persons or activities to our Security Department immediately by dialing 331-1309 from a hospital phone, or (865) 331-1309 on an outside line.
Please do not bring valuables with you to the hospital. If possible, send them home with a family member or let your nurse know if you have valuables that need to be secured before or immediately upon going to your room. Your nursing staff can arrange to have valuables checked for you.
If you must have your valuables with you, please take precautions to safeguard your items while you are here. The hospital cannot be held responsible for the loss of money or other valuables kept in your room.
Eyeglasses, contact lenses, hearing aids and dentures should be kept in protective containers when not in use. Please do not wrap in tissue, paper towels or pieces of hospital linen.
For the safety of our patients and staff, visitors remaining after visiting hours must obtain a visitor’s pass from the security office. Between the hours of 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., all visitors should enter the hospital through the entrance near the emergency department, located on Laurel Avenue.
The security office is located in the lobby of the emergency department entrance off Laurel Avenue and can be reached by calling (865) 331-1309.
