For planned surgeries, the booking for your hospital stay will be made through the Customer Service Officer from the Specialist Clinic.
Below is everything you need to know for General Admissions to Oceania Hospitals Pte Ltd.
If you are required to come into the hospital for scheduled day surgery, we will contact you one business day prior to your scheduled admission to confirm timing and other related details. During this call we will also confirm your fasting details including the time of admission. Unplanned medical admissions are usually arranged via a direct referral from your Doctor.
On the day of your admission, ensure you arrive at the hospital at the time designated by the Admissions Officer or your Doctor. On arrival, please register at our Medical Centre so we can confirm your personal details, you can sign the hospital paperwork and admission forms and pay any out-of-pocket expenses. The hospital does not accept responsibility for security of your personal possessions, including jewelry, mobile phones, watches, money, etc. You can leave these with your relative accompanying you.
