General Information for Patients
Covenant Hospital Plainview does everything possible to make your every experience with us as comfortable and convenient as possible. To that end, in this section you'll find information relating to the practical issues of hospitalization, including obtaining medical records, organ donation, interpretation services, and visiting hours/policies/parking.
Under federal law, all health care practitioners and facilities must grant patients access to their medical records. If you would like to request a copy of your Covenant Hospital Plainview medical records or birth certificate, please call 806.291.3330.
At Covenant Hospital Plainview, we do all that we can to save as many lives as possible. But with your help, we could do even more. More than 92,000 people nationwide are on the waiting list for an organ transplant—and new names are being added every day. And unfortunately, many of those patients die before a match can be found.
We encourage all of our patients to become organ donors. Doing so will not impact the quality of care you receive—our physicians will always do absolutely all they can to save you. Only when they've exhausted all their options will our transplant teams be notified that the possibility for an organ transplant exists.
Our need for organs is great—however, it's an important decision and one we encourage you to discuss with your family. If you're a Texas resident and wish to become a donor, register here.
At Covenant Hospital Plainview, we want all of our patients to feel as comfortable as possible while at our hospital. That's why we offer an interpreter service for all non-English-speaking patients and their family members. If you need interpreter assistance, simply alert your nurse that you would like to request an interpreter and one will be provided to you.
At Covenant Hospital Plainview, our primary focus is on the well-being of our patients and visitors. The following rules and policies are designed with your comfort in mind.
