St. Helena Hospital Clear Lake Introduces Private Rooms

Clearlake, CA – Patients and visitors to St. Helena Hospital Clear Lake are likely to notice a lot of changes to the hospital, most recently the addition of private rooms.  Since the hospital was built most patients have been treated in double occupancy rooms, but this month’s addition of five new private rooms is changing all that.  Only four double occupancy inpatient rooms remain, meaning that most patients admitted to the hospital will now have a more personal and private experience with added space for family and visitors, and no roommate. 

“A quiet and private atmosphere is so important to the healing process,” said David Santos, Administrator of St. Helena Hospital Clear Lake. “We are thrilled to be able to enhance the health experience of our community in this way.”

The change comes on the heels of recent updates to the hospital’s common areas, exterior landscaping, and the addition of new technologies such as digital mammography and robotic telemedicine to enhance access to specialty care.  In January the much anticipated new ER will open at St. Helena Hospital Clear Lake which will ultimately house twelve new private treatment rooms and offer a quieter, faster, and more comfortable emergency room experience.  The St. Helena Hospital Clear Lake development department continues to work with the community to raise the remaining funds required to pay for the new ER construction.
