Patient Portal: Information at Your Fingertips

Hospitals are now offering a new online service that allows you, the patient, to view information about your hospital visit. Previously this information was only available through a hospital’s Medical Records office. This new service allows you to view information about your visit on your desktop, tablet, or Smartphone, whenever you need it.

The Patient Portal

Your Patient Portal is a free online service that gives you 24/7 access to information about your hospital visit(s). Your Patient Portal is a secure and convenient way to:

  • view information about your hospital visit(s)
  • view medications prescribed during your visit(s)
  • view allergies identified during your visit(s)
  • view immunizations given during your visit(s)
  • view lab and diagnostic procedures performed
  • be more informed and prepared for planned follow-up care

Using your Patient Portal can help you be more actively involved in your health care. You can use it to:

  • share your hospital information with your physicians
  • ask questions about your care and treatment
  • make more informed decisions about your care

For Parents and Newborns

The Patient Portal is also a great tool for parents. When you register to deliver your child at the hospital, make sure to sign up for the Patient Portal. An account will be created for your child, so you will be able to view information about your newborn such as birth weight, test results and any medications given. This is valuable information for you and for your child’s pediatrician.

How do I Sign Up?

The only item you need for the Patient Portal is an email address. To sign up, you just need to provide this address when you pre-register, or if you register in person.

If you have already been a patient and want to sign up for the Patient Portal, please contact us and let us know you would like to sign up.
