Registration is required to receive hospital services. You may:
If you're admitted to the hospital in urgent or emergency circumstances, a staff member from Patient Access will meet with your family member or visit your room when you can provide information.
If you've received care from us in the past, we'll review your existing information and make any needed updates.
We'll collect and document your:
- Name, date of birth, Social Security number, and other personal information
- Insurance policy information (found on your insurance card)
