Patient telephones

Patients are welcome to use the telephone next to their bed. The telephone requires a phonecard, available for purchase in the hospital.


Phonecards are on sale in vending machines across the hospital and in the Deli de Luca kiosks in the main hospital building (Sentralblokka) and the Women's Clinic (Kvinneklinikken).
