In the event of an emergency, a Spectrum Health Lakeland public emergency preparedness hotline is available by calling (844) 385-2191. This number will contain a scripted message with the latest situational updates as they become available. For example, during blizzard conditions, a list of facility closures may be recorded.

If you are not a member of the media and would like to speak with someone at Lakeland, please call our main phone line at (800) 968-0115.
