Admissions

When you arrive at Chippewa County-Montevideo Hospital, you will meet our admission clerk at the front desk. In order to assist you during your stay, the admission’s clerk will need to obtain personal and financial information for your medical records.
This information is confidential and will be used only by the professional people who care for you. Your admission to the hospital was requested by your physician. Only a physician on the medical staff can admit a patient. The room to which you will be assigned is based on your medical needs, your preference and the availability of rooms.

 

Helpful Tips from CCMH
Preparing for Your Clinic and/or Hospital Appointment

  • It is essential that you arrive at your scheduled check in time.  This allows time to register for your appointment and meet with the nurse prior to your exam.
  • If you are scheduled for a physical or annual exam and have an early morning appointment you may wish to avoid eating or drinking prior to your exam so fasting lab work may be done the same day.
  • If you are bringing small children along for your exam, please make arrangements for someone to help watch them during your exam.
