At South Shore Hospital, your health matters to us.

group of medical doctors in office

We try to provide the least invasive diagnostic and treatment options. Our Pre-Admission Testing Department staff is here to help. They will schedule an appointment that is convenient for you and arrange for the medical tests or procedures your physician orders to be done at that time.

The Admitting staff understands your health concerns while being admitted or registering for outpatient tests or surgery. We’re dedicated to making this process as quick and efficient as possible for you. Our staff will help you prepare, keep you informed and put you at ease.

The Admitting Department never closes. They handle all non-emergency and emergency admissions to the hospital.

On the day of your PAT appointment, please arrive on time and bring your personal identification, your physician’s authorization or directions for tests or surgery, the HMO referral form, and your insurance, HMO, Medicaid, or Medicare card.
