Admitting

The Hospital has three main entrances:
  1. Emergency Department Entrance
  2. Admitting Entrance
  3. Visitor Entrance

The entrances are clearly marked. The Emergency Department Entrance and the Admitting Entrance are located side by side, on the west side of the complex. The Visitor Entrance is located right at the front of the hospital and opens into the main lobby.

Admitting (Patient Registration)
You can access the Admitting area through the Admitting Entrance. It is located on the main floor of Grace Hospital, near the Emergency Department.
