The Admission Process
South Shore Hospital strives to extend excellence in service, from the moment you are admitted, through your care and recovery.
Please prepare for your outpatient appointment or inpatient stay to assure a smooth admission upon arrival. Whenever possible, pre-register to expedite your admission. You may need any or all of the following information:
- Insurance Identification Cards and co-payments (if applicable)
- Physician referrals (if applicable)
- Provider order (for outpatient services)
- Social Security Card
- Photo Identification
You may also be asked to sign a consent form giving South Shore Hospital permission for treatment and care. This permission is required for both emergency and routine care.
Help and guidance are always available at the time of admission to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
