Your Hospital Admission
There are different reasons and many different ways for patients to be admitted to the UT Health Northeast.
A patient’s medical need allows time to plan for the upcoming hospital stay.
- Inpatient visits - Many people come to stay at the University of Texas Health Science Center because they are having a surgical procedure or operation that is performed in the operating room. There are also many procedures that are done in the clinics or Radiology that require the patient to stay overnight or even longer. Appointment times and arrival instructions for these non-surgicial procedures are usually provided either by your physician or by the department where your procedure is being performed.
- Outpatient or Ambulatory Visit - Patient is able to go home after an exam or medical procedure.
A patient’s medical need requires immediate care. Generally, patients go directly to the Emergency Deparment, located on the first floor of the "A" building.
The Admissions Office is located on the first floor of the Riter Building.
