Transportation Home and Follow-up

On the day of your discharge, our goal is to have you ready to leave by noon. If possible, we recommend that you ask a family member or friend to pick you up at the hospital. Information regarding taxi services and bus schedules is available in the Clinics Lobby and at the information desk at the hospital entrance.

If your doctor asks you to return for a follow-up visit to check your progress, the unit clerk will make a clinic appointment for you before your discharge. If you are discharged after business hours or on a weekend, hospital staff will contact you at home to set up an appointment.

If, after you return home, you find that you have additional questions or concerns, please refer to your written discharge instructions for the telephone numbers you can call for assistance.

Your family physician will be sent a complete report shortly after your discharge.
