Admitting and registration are located in the Emergency Department on the Main Floor. This area of the Hospital is open 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. daily, seven days a week. Please present your valid Ontario Health card and insurance information upon your arrival.

Discharge Planning

Discharge time is 11:00 a.m. to allow time for incoming patients to be admitted. Patients must see a nurse prior to leaving the Hospital to ensure discharge planning is complete. An Expected Date of Discharge is posted for every in-patient.

Counselling and information are provided to you and your family if you require assistance. The coordinator facilitates applications to long-term care facilities and liaises with the community agencies such as Community Care Access. This is a flexible guideline for planning for discharge, and is based on diagnosis.

Documents Required

You'll need these documents:

  • Ontario Health Card
  • Other health insurance card(s)
  • Proof of valid semi-private and/or private insurance
  • Coverage for accommodation other than standard ward
  • A valid credit card (Visa or MasterCard)
  • Workplace Safety Insurance Board (WSIB) claim number if applicable

Most Ontario residents are insured by the Ontario Hospital Insurance Plan (OHIP). If you do not have OHIP coverage, you may be required to pay a deposit to the Hospital at the time of admission. The balance of your account will be due upon discharge from the Hospital. If your procedure is NOT covered by OHIP, you will be asked to pay in advance. If you are unsure whether or not your procedure is covered, please call your physician.
