Admission Guide

Admission Guide

  • Pre-Admission Registration

    Welcome To Gleneagles Hospital

    To have your pre-admission registration processed, please come to the Admission counters at Hospital Lobby, Level 2. (Open 24 hours daily). Your doctor or the clinic staff will make the necessary bookings for your admission into the hospital.

    The hospital is able to confirm the availability of a room type only at the time of your admission. This is due to the uncertainty of discharges and emergency admissions in a hospital. However, if we are unable to provide you with the room of your choice at admission, we will make the transfer as soon as your preferred room type is available.

    Here is a step-by-step guide to help you breeze through the process from admission to discharge at our hospital:


    On The Day Of Admission For Inpatient And Day Surgery

    • Inpatient Admission Time

      Unless instructed otherwise by your doctor, you should come to the hospital after 12.00noon as discharge time is 11.00am

      If your doctor has informed you that you will need blood on standby for surgery, you must check into the hospital one day before surgery and before 1.00pm.

      However, if you are undergoing major surgery on a Monday, you should come to the hospital on Saturday before 11.00am for blood grouping and cross-matching.
