When You Arrive

Even if you are only coming for a minor procedure, plan for someone else to drive you to Gritman and drive you home.

All patients should park in the main parking lot and enter through the main front doors. Patients coming in for radiology or lab services may also enter through the doors adjacent to the emergency room.

Stop at the registration desk where you enter so that we can verify your identity and procedure, create or update your account and validate your insurance coverage.
