Admissions Information


We offer private rooms for your privacy and comfort. Emergency admissions and room availability may sometimes necessitate semi-private accommodations. No matter what type of room, you can expect the same quality service.

What to Bring
Please remember to bring your insurance card and identification. For your personal needs, you only need a few items like toiletries, bath robe, slippers with non-slip soles, and night clothes. You may also want to bring some reading materials from home.

What Not to Bring
We prefer that you leave your valuables and jewelry at home. The hospital is not responsible for loss of personal items.

Telephones/Cell Phones/Wireless Internet
Telephones are provided in all patient rooms at no additional charge. All long-distance calls must be made collect or with a calling card. To make local calls, dial "9" and then the number. To place a long-distance call, please dial "0" and the switchboard operator will be happy to help you.
Stanton County Hospital (SCH) does have wireless internet available and cell phones are allowed. However, we are not responsible if these items are lost or broken.

Color television is available in all patient rooms at no extra charge. Please be considerate of other guests by keeping the volume low.

Discharge Planning
SCH Social Services can help you and your family plan and arrange for the care you will need following discharge from the hospital. Your nurse can make arrangements for Social Services to visit with you.

Financial Arrangements
As a courtesy, we will bill your insurance company for you. You should be aware that hospital insurance plans do not always provide full coverage for your bill. Charges not covered by your insurance plan are your responsibility. In addition, your hospital bill does not include your physician’s fee or services of other providers such as a radiologist. These services will be billed to you separately.

SCH provides financial assistance for those that qualify. Please contact the hospital business office for details.

Visiting hours for the hospital are 8am to 8pm. Children under the age of 12 years must be accompanied by an adult. Children under the age of 6 years must be authorized by the nurse on duty, the patient’s physician, or administration.
