The Association of Senior and Emeritus Faculty (ASEF) of the medical school is initiating a service for Penn faculty and their family members who require admission to HUP. As colleagues, we are happy to stop by for a brief welcoming visit. We also realize that the hospital is often a threatening place, and that many of our medical terms and activities can be confusing. At your request, we will have one of our medical emeriti pay you and your family a visit during the stay, to see how things are going, and potentially to help explain some of the confusing and bothersome aspects of being hospitalized.
If you would like an ASEF medical emeritus colleague to visit you or one of your family members, please call Patient & Guest Relations at (215)-662-2575. Alternatively, enter the Main Entrance of HUP on 34th Street, take the escalator on the left to the Mezzanine and walk straight ahead past the elevators and Information Desk to the Admissions Office at the end of the corridor marked by an Exit sign. Turn left to enter the Patient & Guest Relations Office, which is open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
