Below is a step-by-step guide and timeline to your day of admission so you know what to anticipate. If your admission is arranged through the Strong Surgical Center you will follow a different process than regularly scheduled patients. Please note, this guide is for patients who will be spending one or more nights at Strong Memorial Hospital.
Before Your Scheduled Day of Admission
Please think of one or two trusted individuals –family or friends – who you want to identify as your support person(s) and how much you would like them involved in your care. These individuals are welcome to visit you 24 hours/day, seven days a week.
Please review the list of what to bring for your hospital stay. You will learn what you should bring, what we provide for you during your stay, and what we kindly ask you to leave at home.
Don’t forget! It’s important to bring your insurance card(s) when you come to the hospital
