Administrative formalities

We do our utmost to make your administrative formalities straightforward. On arrival, the receptionist will tell you which dedicated team will help you with these formalities.

First visit
The Central Admissions Office, a dedicated service, will receive you and create your medical file. It is located on the ground floor and is open from 7:45 to 18:00 Monday to Friday. 

The Admissions Office will give you a patient identification card that includes your file number. It will be requested every time you come back to the Institute (as an outpatient or to be hospitalized).

You can request the non-disclosure of your presence at the Institute and ask not to receive any phone calls.

Subsequent visits
Go to the reception area where a receptionist will tell you where you have to go; an assistant of this service will register your arrival and proceed directly with the administrative formalities.

Each time you come to the Institute, please bring the following documents with you :

  • any medical documents in your possession (X-rays, test results, etc.);
  • the follow-up booklets you were given when you were treated ;
  • the list of medications you are taking and the current prescription;

In the absence of a pre-determined and paid quote, pursuant to Article 22 of Decree 59-1510 of 29 December 1959, you are required to pay a fee equal to 10 days of hospitalization on admission. Should you be discharged before the 10 days are up, the fraction of the fee exceeding the number of days present will be returned. Beyond 10 days, the balance will need to be paid when you leave.
