Outpatient Registration
If you are a new patient please plan to arrive 35 minutes prior to your appointment time to register in the admitting department. Please bring your physician order, your insurance card and identification. If you are an existing patient please plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment time to confirm your demographic information and provide current insurance policy numbers and cards.  

Patients scheduled for inpatient or outpatient surgery must pre-register. This may be done the same day as the pre-operative testing.

Inpatient Admission
Patients being admitted should report to the Emergency Department registration desk. Please be prepared to provide demographic and insurance information. Your insurance coverage and benefits will be verified. If your insurance requires pre-authorization please notify your insurance company in advance of your admission. Patients will be requested to pay a deposit for deductibles, co-pays or amounts not covered by your insurance benefits.  

Room Assignment
Touro offers semi-private rooms, private rooms and suites to our patients. Room assignments are made daily by Nursing and are based on the patient's condition and medical necessity. Private rooms are assigned to patients when the medical condition deems necessary. We will attempt to accommodate any patient request for a private room or suite, based on availability.  There is an additional charge per night for suites and private rooms.  Patients are required to pay a deposit for a private room / suite.
