• Flowers

    The beautiful flower arrangements that you deliver to patients and staff bring cheer to many here at the LWDH, however, certain types of flowers appear to aggravate the sensitivities and allergies of some individuals.  Please consider using the lesser fragrant flowers.  Thank you.
  • Hospital Security

    In order to maintain the security of our building the south lobby doors which are not monitored after hours, will be locked from Monday to Friday at 5 p.m. and re-opened at 7 a.m.  The doors will be locked all days on Weekends and Statutory Holidays.  Patients, Visitors as well as staff should enter through the Emergency entrance during these times.
