The front office assistant will receive you and help you check-in through the hospital information system. Your medical records will be maintained and stored for all future reference. The front office assistant will then guide you to the counselors, in case you need clarity on the expected expenditure. Please provide the names of primary medical care and primary financial care attendants so that communication on these issues is done only with relevant persons.
