Admissions for surgical procedures are processed through the Admitting Department, which is located on the ground floor, north of the main fountain lobby, near the pre-hospitalization area. Please present your appointment slip to the department on your arrival at the hospital for surgery. The Admitting Department processes patients for both the Ambulatory Surgical Center and inpatient care.
Documents Needed for Admission:

- Guarantee of payment.
- A valid guarantor or sponsor letter covering hospitalization and follow-up treatment. You will need to arrange
- Payment for any amount not covered by the guarantor's letter
- A deposit, if indicated on the appointment slip, for those who will be paying their own hospital costs. This deposit is an estimate of the costs. Actual charges may differ, based on the actual number of days you are hospitalized and the course of treatment required.
Companions must be authorized on admission. Authorization is granted for patients with special needs, such as small children, the elderly, and disabled or blind patients. Companions must be at least 16 years old and in good health. They may not be accompanied by infants or children.
Sick leave verification:
If you need sick leave documentation for your hospitalization, please let the clerk know on admission.
Request for change of room: The following types of patient rooms are available at KKESH: three-bed shared rooms, single rooms, and two-room suites.
