What to bring

We want our patients to feel as comfortable as possible. Learn what items you will need during your inpatient stay, along with what you won�t need, so you can focus on finding better health and well-being.

Safety is a top priority at TriStar Skyline Madison, so there are certain items that cannot be allowed in the inpatient units. There are personal items that are allowed and will make your stay more comfortable. Items you should and should not bring are listed below. If there are items you are unsure about, a staff member will be available to advise you on whether or not an item is acceptable.
