Frequently Asked Questions

  • We ask all of our patients to bring their home medications with them in the original containers. It is very important that we get an accurate list of medications you are currently taking. This includes over-the-counter medications and herbal supplements.

    You will also need to bring your insurance card, Medicare card, and any paperwork the doctor’s office may have given you pertaining to your hospital visit or surgery. It is very important to update your current information with each visit to make sure the proper information is submitted with your insurance claim. Your Pre-admit nurse will inform you of any other items that you might need to bring.
