When your physician schedules a reservation for admission or short procedure stay, we will contact you by telephone to collect demographic information. We will contact your insurance company and notify them of your impending admission. We will notify you of your financial responsibility.
At this telephone call, we will process your pre-registration and set up an appointment with the Preadmission nurse for a telephone medical screening. It is necessary to have had your History and Physical completed prior to this call with the nurse. You may need to come in for a PAT appointment for testing and teaching. This need will be determined at the point of the telephone screening.

Prior to your delivery you will need to obtain and complete various pre-registration forms. These will be given to you at your physician’s office.
