Do I need to fill out any forms?
For your convenience, we allow our patients to complete pre-admission testing online. Please click here to complete this process. You will be asked to provide your insurance information, medical history and demographic information. This allows us to properly prepare for your surgery.
What types of insurance do you accept?
The hospital accepts most private insurance plans as well as Medicare. Feel free to call us if you have specific insurance questions.
What if I need to stay overnight?
The hospital has eight inpatient rooms. Each patient room is private and contains a private bath. Rooms are well appointed and comfortable, and feel more like a hotel room than a hospital room. In fact, some call the facility the “hospital hotel.” The rooms also have space for family members to remain with patients during recovery. Depending on the type of surgery and the expected recovery time, patients will stay as briefly as one night to as long as three nights.
The hospital is accredited by the Joint commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, as well as by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Should I go to the Surgical Center in an emergency?
Our hospital does not have an emergency department. In the event of a medical emergency, dial 911 for immediate assistance.
If you require surgery, ask your doctor about the West Chester Hospital Surgical Center.
