Because your time is valuable we want to ensure your admission to Valley County Health System is comprehensive and prompt. Any information provided before your admission helps in the overall process. Many of these items we request you bring prior to admission are required by government agencies. Whether you will be an inpatient (staying overnight) or an outpatient (going home the same day as services are provided) you will need to complete the admission process and provide appropriate documentation.
Below is a list of required items for admission to the hospital:
• Photo ID (e.g. drivers license)

Please report to the front desk of the hospital for all registrations except for emergencies.

Registration office hours are Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 pm. Admissions after hours are done by acute care staff. If you have any questions, or for more information please call 308.728.4200.
