What Patients Can Expect

At Morgan Medical Center we strive to exceed the expectations of our patients. Our admissions department, located at the main entrance, will welcome you to our facility. The department staff members are friendly, knowledgeable and prepared to make a patient’s registration experience as smooth as possible.

Patients who are having a procedure that has been scheduled ahead of time by their physician’s office may receive a phone call from our staff a day or two prior to their visit. This will allow the patient to provide most of the registration information from the comfort of their own home.

To better serve our patients and ensure accurate information in our medical records, our staff will need to make copies of a patient’s insurance cards and personal identification, such as a driver’s license. Having this information available upon check-in will speed the registration process.

Our admissions staff can also give you an estimate of the anticipated cost of most common tests and procedures in our laboratory, and radiology departments. We do request that patients be prepared to pay for the portion of expenses not covered by their insurance policy. While Morgan Medical Center has contracts with many insurance companies, we ask that patients contact their insurance company directly for any questions they may have concerning coverage.
