Your doctor has arranged for your admission to Wesley Medical Center. The information below will help ease the process. During admission you may be asked to provide information about yourself, as well as financial information.
If your doctor has given us advance notice of your inpatient or outpatient admission, someone from the Admissions Department may call you a few days before your scheduled visit to verify basic information, such as your address and next of kin, name of your employer, and the type of insurance that you carry. It would also be helpful to tell us if you have any special needs such a wheelchair or an interpreter. This information will speed up the registration process on the date of your arrival.
