Pre-admission ensures you are sufficiently prepared for your hospital visit and saves time on the day of admission. It also means you have one less thing to be concerned about, so that you can focus fully on your health and recovery. 

The pre admission process 
Once your doctor has decided to admit you to hospital, you can book in at the preadmissions clinic at the reception of the Cintocare Hospital, or download the preadmission form and complete it before taking it to hospital (please do this the same day when your doctor scheduled you for your operation). 

-Cintocare Hospital Pre admission form

This ensures that on the day of your admission, all the relevant documentation has been completed, which means you would not have to wait long before being admitted to your ward.  
If you do it on the day of the operation, your operation might be delayed or even cancelled.

You are required to obtain preauthorisation from your medical aid for all the procedures to be performed in theatre.
Either the patient or the main member must contact the medical aid to obtain authorisation for the procedures. It remains the responsibility of the member to be informed of what is covered by their medical and or insurance and if any co-payments will be payable by the member. 

Private patients will need a quotation from the Cintocare Hospital regarding their admission cost and theatre fees.
This will depend on the type of operation and the estimated duration of the procedure. 

Patient-information downloads 
Please download the form, complete the document, and submit it to the Cintocare Hospital Preadmission Clinic.
