What if Hospitalization is Required?
In general, the doctors admit their patients to Lourdes Hospital. If for some reason you prefer to be admitted elsewhere, discuss this with your doctor. Our physicians have admitting privileges to all hospitals in the area. If hospitalization is necessary, the decision will be mutually made between the physician and the patient as to which facility to use. Our physicians do not round on our patients at the hospital but have coverage arrangements with full-time hospitalist physicians. Be sure to contact your insurance plan, especially if you belong to an HMO.
Please call the office 24 hours in advance if you are unable to keep an appointment. Providers have a daily preset schedule. Arriving late to your appointment will delay other appointments and you may be asked to reschedule. Walk-ins are discouraged and can result in long wait times because scheduled appointments will be seen first.
- Insurance cards must be presented at the time of visit.
- Co-payments are expected at the time of visit.
- All insurance companies require us to verify all identifying information at the time you present for each visit to prevent errors that might result in a rejection of payment by your insurer.
