Hospital Pre-Registration

Thank you for choosing Mercy Health for your healthcare needs. 

Please take a moment to complete your pre-registration. We ask that you do this more than three days prior to your service. On the day of your procedure, please bring your insurance cards and photo ID with you for verification. If you have any questions, please contact our Customer Service Team. We are happy to help you in any way.

Interpreters and Hearing Impaired

We offer free language interpreter services for our non-English-speaking patients through a phone interpreter service available 24 hours a day, every day of the year. 

Sign language interpreters are available free through the Youngstown Speech and Hearing Center. Written materials to assist the deaf, including communication boards and picture booklets, are available through the Speech Therapy department. If you need a TDD during your stay, please alert any member of your nursing staff. Please let us know what works best to help you effectively communicate.

There are small combination safes located in each patient room, which the patient must be alert, oriented and able to walk in order to use this safe.
