However, if you are having surgery on Monday, come to the hospital on Saturday before 12 noon for blood grouping and cross-matching.

Where to go
Please go to the Admissions counter at level 1 with your doctor''s letter.

If you need laboratory tests or investigative procedures performed, these are usually carried out after you have registered for admission or pre-admission.

If you wish to have an estimate of your hospital bill prior to admission, please ask your doctor to complete the Estimate of Hospital Bill form. Give this form to our admissions staff who will be pleased to provide you with an estimate.

Do remember that this estimation of hospital charges is an estimate only and may differ from your final bill if your actual diagnosis, surgery, room type or length of stay differ from that stated in the room.
