Voicemail Instructions for Stanford Hospitals and Clinics

Get started

Your admin or department IT contact will provide a phone, phone number, and voicemail password. Each phone number is attached to a  voicemail profile containing information such as passwords, greetings, forwarding preferences, and so on. If you have difficulty logging in to the voicemail system using the provided information, call 4-HELP (4-4357) for assistance, as the phone number may still be using an old profile.

The first time you log in, you will be prompted to initialize your voice mailbox by changing your password and setting up your greeting.

If you have questions about the details of your particular voicemail installation, consult your Department IT Contact. Standard parameters for voice mailboxes, such as when calls are forwarded or the number of messages you can store, are described on the Voice Mailbox Types page.
