The OhioHealth Shelby Hospital directory lists the name, room number, room phone number, general condition and religion of each patient, if provided. To protect your privacy this information is only shared with people (visitors/callers) who ask for you by name, or by clergy who ask for you by religious affiliation. You have the right to have your information excluded from this directory. Please note if you exclude your information we will not be able to acknowledge your presence as a patient to any visitors or callers.
