Admissions

Take it easy.

Let us make the process easier.

Checking into Pottstown Hospital can be quick and stress-free–if you take a little time to prepare. Follow the links below for some tips and lists that will help you (and us), make the process a little easier.

Precertification

Get ready. Get set.

It's all about preparation.

Completing paperwork before you arrive saves time and reduces stress at check-in.

You can securely pre-register for all inpatient and outpatient services, including diagnostic testing, by completing our ONLINE REGISTRATION form at least three business days before your procedure date.

You can also pre-register by phone by calling (610) 327-7548.

We'll get you where you need to be.
