If your doctor has booked you in for a procedure at St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney you may be wondering what happens next and when. Below is an outline of what you can expect.
If your procedure requires you to stay in hospital overnight, you will normally be admitted via the Day Procedure Centre on Level 5 on the morning of your operation. You will be allocated a bed and moved to the ward from the recovery area.
If your doctor requires you to be admitted to hospital the day before your procedure or as a medical patient, you will receive a phone call advising you of the time to come to the hospital. You will need to present to the Front Reception desk of the hospital with your Medicare card and you will be admitted to the ward.
Due to the unexpected demands placed on the hospital, there may be a need to reschedule your admission. However, St Vincent’s will make every effort to make sure you are admitted on the planned date.
St Vincent’s endeavours to provide a quality service to all patients. If you have any questions regarding the admission process please contact the Admission Department on 02 8382 3000.
