In brief: Whatever you need

Hospitals will provide for your medical needs, but you may bring other things to ease you stay.
Many patients bring their own toiletries, make-up, a change of clothes and a bath robe. Some bring laptops and music players. Our hospitals baylor medical center of irving and thr harris methodist heb provide free wifi. I have even seen people bring their own pillows or favorite blankets.
