Services & amenities

Internet access/Wi-Fi
Geisinger Shamokin Area Community Hospital offers complimentary internet access while you are on our campus. The Wi-Fi network is “Geisinger Guest.”

We do use content-filtering tools to prevent access to some websites. That is to protect our patients, their visitors and Geisinger. We encourage you to be cautious when disclosing personally identifiable or sensitive information while on any shared, public network, including ours.

If you have any questions, ask one of our hospital staff for instructions on using our network to connect to the internet.

Laptop/cell phone usage

Because cellular phones and other electronic devices may interfere with electronic equipment in patient areas, we ask that you turn off your phone, laptop or other device in certain areas.

Use of cell phones and electronics is permitted in waiting areas, in patient rooms or outside of the hospital, unless otherwise noted on a sign.

As a courtesy to others in the facility, limit conversations that may be disruptive to other guests and keep your voice level down.

In-room phone
The telephone in your room is provided free of charge. Ask a member of your care team for the direct phone number for your telephone.
