Preparing for Hospitalization


Getting ready to be in the hospital can be nearly as stressful as having surgery. At Dominican Hospital, we want to do everything we can to make your preparation and your stay as positive as possible.

Please pre-register online.

We will call you at home a few days beforehand to answer your questions. You will also be requested to have certain tests performed a few days before your stay.

This is also the time to decide on the levels of care you desire, and have considered and signed Durable Powers of Attorney or other Advance Directives. We also offer seminars on Advance Directives. Copies of the documents are always available in the Hospital Gift Shop.

Well before your arrival at the hospital, you will also want to make arrangements through your doctor for any self-donated blood transfusions or other products.
