Kino Hospital Has New Number


* Last year it was the name. Now it's the phone number.

University Physicians Healthcare Hospital at Kino Campus - formerly Kino Community Hospital - was scheduled to change its main telephone number at 12:01 this morning.

The new number is 874-2000.

Calling the old number - 294-4471 - will still connect callers to the hospital's main switchboard, at least for the near future. The new number came with the hospital's switch to a new telephone system, said Norm Botsford, CEO of Kino and University Physicians Healthcare.

Numbers for hospital departments, outpatient clinics and hospital workers' direct lines also will stay the same for the near future, Botsford said.
