Scheduling and Registration
We know that preparing for a medical procedure can be an anxiety-producing time for patients and their caregivers. With that in mind, we’ve developed streamlined scheduling and registration processes that are convenient and thorough. With the help of our trained, understanding staff, patients and their families receive courteous, efficient support that respects their personal schedules and considers their physical well-being.
For the convenience of patients, their caregivers, and their physicians, Centralized Scheduling arranges appointments and pre-registration for most Outpatient tests and procedures with one phone call. Patients needing the Lab Services do not need an appointment and can report directly to Outpatient Registration. The process reduces scheduling time and improves the efficiency and accuracy of scheduling time by combining better scheduling coordination, registration and treatment authorization. Most important, it eliminates the need to call more than one phone number.
To schedule an appointment and pre-register for tests and procedures, call 732-294-APPT (2778), Monday through Friday, 8am to 7pm.
All patients scheduled for Inpatient and Short Stay procedures as well as Direct Admits register through the Admitting Department. When registering, please bring insurance cards and a form of identification. Call (732) 294-2651 for pre-admission and additional information. For your convenience, the department is open seven days a week, 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
A quick, simple process has been designed for patients being treated in the Emergency Department. For those being admitted to the hospital, we complete registration at the bedside 24 hours a day, seven days a week. When possible, please bring insurance cards and a form of identification when registering. If a patient does not have insurance, information will be provided regarding charity care and other assistance programs that may be available. Emergency Department Registration is located within the Emergency Department on the first floor of the East Tower. For information, call 732-294-2787.
Outpatient Registration registers all patients preparing for outpatient tests and procedures. When registering, please bring insurance cards and a form of identification to the Outpatient Registration Department located on the basement level near the outpatient parking lot. The department's hours are Monday through Friday, 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday, 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. For pre-registration or more information, call (732) 294-2682.
