Preparing for Your Hospital Stay

We strive to make your stay at Weill Cornell Medicine as comfortable as possible. To help you plan for the practical elements of your hospitalization, we’ve created a patient and visitor guide. 

This guide can help you understand what to expect during your stay at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and can help you familiarize yourself with the services and amenities we offer.

Please read through the guide for information regarding what to bring on the day of admission, what you can expect on the day of admission and the day of discharge, and a description of your rights as a patient.
