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.
