Checking In to the Hospital
When you arrive at High Point Medical Center we want your check-in to be as smooth as possible. So whether you are coming to us as an outpatient or an inpatient we ask that you proceed directly to our Patient Entrance, located adjacent to the Patient and Visitor Parking Deck, facing Elm Street. Upon entering through the Patient Entrance you will be greeted and escorted to the Admitting Department where we will register you for your procedure or stay.
As of September 1, 2018, Wake Forest Baptist Health has updated how we handle financial assistance.

It is part of our mission at Wake Forest Baptist to help the communities we serve. We aim to provide emergent and critical care to those in need, regardless of one’s ability to pay, and we can assist in providing financial assistance for those who have limited financial resources and do not qualify for outside assistance or have insurance or additional funding.
