Porter Regional Hospital was built with the total patient experience in mind
From the minute you enter Porter Regional Hospital, patients and guests will experience a warm, healing and welcoming environment. Our expansive two-and-a-half story main lobby offers ample seating and maximizes natural sunlight throughout the day.
Although Porter Regional Hospital is more than double the size of our previous facility, navigating the new larger facility is much simpler, allowing for fewer steps, easier access and faster service. Why? Because of the hospital's all new patient-centered design. "Our associates and physicians played a central role in the hospital's evolution, collaborating with architects to fine-tune floor plans to ensure the new facility would emphasize efficiency, safety, comfort, convenience and advanced quality care," said Porter's CEO Jonathan Nalli. "Our grand two-story lobby was designed with three distinct pathways to easily and effectively guide patients and visitors directly to their destinations in much less time and with fewer steps. It's that easy."
Convenient and Private Registration
Just down the main lobby corridor is our reception desk and six private registration stations. These large work stations offer patients a more confidential setting and our registrars the ability to process patients more quickly and comfortably.
Complimentary Valet Parking Service
It is now our pleasure to offer patients and visitors free valet parking at Porter Regional Hospital. For this complimentary service, look for our valet associates wearing red shirts at the main entrance.
Jazzman's Cafe and Bakery
For added convenience, two dining options are available: Jazzman's Cafe and Bakery, a coffeeshop-style setting with bistro tables on the second floor, and the Garden Cafe on the ground floor that features more traditional cafeteria-style dining.
Kaleidoscope Gift Shop
Unique gifts, flowers, cards, magazines, new baby items, snacks, candy, and more are available at Kaleidoscope Gifts, located in the lobby just inside the main entrance.
