Conemaugh Nason Medical Center recognizes that patients need as much rest as possible to promote the healing process. A quiet and restful environment promotes healing, while excessive noise can add stress and be detrimental to healing. To allow patients rest during the day, quiet hours are 1 - 3 pm and after 8 pm daily.
