Your Admission

Your family physician, or the doctor in Emergency, will arrange your admission through the Admitting Department.

Every effort will be made to provide you with the accommodation related to your insurance coverage.  The Admitting staff will ask for insurance certificates which cover special accommodation.  There is an extra charge for semi-private and private rooms if you request them and you do not have additional insurance.

If you are admitted to an accommodation other than requested, you will be moved as soon as a bed is available.

Bring along all information about your Ontario Health Coverage, your social insurance number, your blue card, if previously at W.H.G.H., other appropriate insurance certificates and information about medications taken at home.

Your valid health card must be presented at the time of admission.
