Registration and Admission

When you come to the hospital for an out-patient procedure such as laboratory work or an x-ray, to make arrangements for same-day surgery, or to be admitted your first stop will be to register. One of our professional registration staff members – located just off the main lobby in private offices – will enter your pertinent information into the hospital computer system or update that information if you are a returning patient. You will also be asked to sign several necessary forms.

Each time you come to the hospital for services, please bring the following:

  • Your doctor’s order for the test or procedure you need, or your admission orders.
  • Driver’s license or other photo ID.
  • Your medical insurance cards (we’ll need to verify/update this information each time you visit the hospital and possibly obtain “pre-certification” for services).
  • A check or credit card for co-pay or other charges not covered by the your insurance.
  • A parent or guardian if under the age of 18.

For more information about registration and admission, call the department supervisor, Kacy Spruell, at 970-564-2127.
