Admissions

Your admission begins with the decision made by your physician that you require medical treatment on an inpatient or outpatient basis. Your physician is responsible for your clinical treatment while you are here as a patient. Your physician will make any necessary arrangements for laboratory examinations, medications, diet and other special treatments.

Admitting services are located at the main entrance of the hospital. We accept admissions 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You will be requested to complete all necessary admission requirements. If you are scheduled for a procedure or surgery in advance, you will receive a phone call at home a few days prior to your expected arrival. Your personal and insurance information will be gathered in order to expedite the admission process once you arrive at the facility.
