Patient referrals and admissions
Delivering highly specialized care to all Canadians
The Homewood Health Centre delivers highly specialized care not only to our local community but also to all Canadians. We accept referrals from throughout the country and around the world. The admission process is similar for all patients. Costs and payments vary depending on the type of accommodation and length of stay.
Costs and payment details
The costs of treatment at the Homewood Health Centre vary by program and by type of accommodation (ward, semi-private or private room). Patients from Ontario, from other Canadian provinces and from outside Canada usually have different fee structures. A deposit is required at the time of admission. The Homewood Health Centre accepts major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express), cheques and cash.
Three steps to admission
Admission to Homewood's Specialized Elective Programs begins with a referral from a family physician or other clinician.

Both the completed Referral Form and Patient Information Form must be received by Admitting to begin the admission process.

When the necessary information is received, Admitting will call you to answer any questions and discuss arrangements for your stay or program admission.
