Admissions Procedures

We want your stay at Medical City to be as comfortable as possible. The central admitting area is located in the lobby of Building A. Here is where you'll complete the registration process and receive important information on your procedure and stay at Medical City.

To ensure that the admissions process goes as smoothly as possible, we have compiled a list of what you will need at the time of check-in.

What to Bring

Here is a list of items you will need at registration:

  • Social Security number
  • All active insurance cards
  • Picture ID
  • Any paperwork given to you by your physician
  • Living Will, if applicable
  • Advance Directives, if applicable
  • Powers of Attorney, if applicable

All information obtained during your hospitalization will be held in strict confidence. For added personal comfort, you may also bring your own pajamas or nightgown, bathrobe, slippers, toothbrush, non-electrical shaving equipment and other personal effects you use every day. We request that you leave your valuables at home.

Treatment Permits

We will ask you to sign appropriate consent and release forms that authorize hospital personnel to provide the services your physician has ordered for you.

Identification Bands

You will be required to wear an identification band during your stay. This helps ensure that you will receive the proper treatments and medications. Please do not remove the band for any reason.

Medication List

Please bring a complete list of all currents medications you are taking.

What to Leave at Home

Please do not bring medications from home to the hospital unless your physician instructs you to do so. If your physician asks you to bring your own medications, all medications will be stored and administered by the nursing staff.

NOTE: Patients SHOULD have a complete list of medications with dosages and frequency which they take at home.
