Admission and Registration Information

Instructional Information for LRMC Patients

Upon your arrival to the hospital, all patients (whether Inpatient or Outpatient ) must first go to Registration for instructions.

If you are at the hospital due to an Emergency, or an Outpatient test or procedure, a clerk will process your registration and send you to the appropriate area.

If you already know you are to be admitted, please go to the Admitting Office which is located beside the Registration area. The admitting clerk will process your admission, send you for any additional testing you might need, and then send you to your hospital room. However, some patients may possibly be scheduled for a procedure, such as surgery, before being taken to their hospital room.

Please feel free to ask any questions of the Registration or Admitting personnel.
