When you are discharged, your physician provides a written release from the Hospital. Your nurse reviews with you any final instructions from your physician.
The Admitting office provides a courtesy discharge notice to your room. If you have not received this notice, please call or visit the Patient Financial Counselor before you go home to make arrangements for payment on your account. The counselor is available 8 a.m to 4:30 p.m. weekdays at 452-8107. At other times, the admitting staff will be able to assist you.
A patient escort will accompany you from your room to the main entrance and will assist you with your luggage and personal items.
In order to prepare the room for another patient, we ask that you depart by 1 p.m. on the day of your discharge.
