Admission Process

Step 1

Your physician arranges for your admission to St. Joseph Hospital. He/she will provide you details on when you should arrive at the hospital and where to report. If you are coming in for surgery, your physician will usually request that pre-operative tests be performed a few days prior to your hospitalization. If you have any questions regarding the donation of blood for surgery, please contact your physician.

Step 2 - Pre-registration
