True healing requires more than just excellent medical care. It also requires care for the patient's mind and spirit, which is why we know that visits from friends and loved ones are an integral component of patient recovery. At The Brooklyn Hospital Center, our goal is to make it as pleasant and convenient as possible to visit a patient.
