We want your experience at Alleghany Health to be as simple as possible. To help you with the admissions process, we encourage you or a family member to be familiar with your insurance coverage and any special requirements and/or restrictions specified by your insurance carrier. If you do not have insurance, special payment arrangements can be made.
If you are 18 or older and mentally competent, you have the right to make decisions about your medical treatment. An advance directive is a set of directions you give about the health care that you want if you ever lose the ability to make decisions for yourself. North Carolina has two ways for you to make a formal advance directive. One way is called a living will. The other way is called health care power of attorney. Making a living will or designating a health care power of attorney is your choice. If you become unable to make your own decisions, and you have no living will or health care agent (a person named to make medical decisions for you), your doctor or health care provider will consult with someone close to you about your care.
For additional information regarding a living will or health care power of attorney, please visit the Registration Desk in the hospital lobby.
