In-patient Medicine

Groves Memorial Community Hospital has 44 inpatient beds.

Inpatient treatment is a type of treatment in which a patient is provided with 24 hour, monitored care.

Physicians and hospitals follow a specific set of clinical criteria (severity of illness and intensity of service needed to diagnose and treat) that assists in determining whether a patient meets medical necessity for an “inpatient” status in the hospital.

Groves Hospital offers three types of patient accommodation including standard ward, semi-private and private. Ward rooms include three or four beds and are offered free of charge to all patients with a valid Ontario Health Card. Private or semi-private rooms can be requested for an additional charge. Either the patient’s insurance plan or the patient is responsible for paying the Preferred Accommodation charge.

Every effort is made to provide you with your written requested accommodation. At times, for infection control requirements or patient volume, we may not be able to accommodate your request.

When your physician determines your acute care stay is over and you are waiting for the appropriate Alternate Level of Care bed (such as retirement, rehab, palliative etc), you will be designated as an Alternate Level of Care (ALC) patient. As part of the designation of ALC, a co-payment is required by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. This co-payment is based on an income calculation as provided by the patient who will then be responsible for making the determined payment.
