Patients & Visitors

Healthcare is a lot more than health. Whether it’s advocating for a family member, navigating bills, or simply coordinating your schedule, we know it can be stressful. At CRMC, we aim to not only provide the best possible care but also to ensure your experience is positive from start to finish.

If you have any questions about the Crosby campus, please contact us at (218) 546-7000.

Preparing for Surgery

You can request a chaplain through your care team to provide comfort, counsel, prayer, and rituals — whatever your faith background. Office hours at our Crosby campus are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m, and on call if requested. The chapel, just past the coffee shop, is also open 24/7 for quiet reflection.

To call the chaplain, ask a nurse or call 218-546-7000.


Where do I park at CRMC – Crosby?

Parking is located in the lot right outside CRMC’s main entrance. Plenty of handicap parking spaces are available. A shuttle service is also available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

What information do I need to bring with me to the hospital?

Patients should bring the following information:

  • Insurance card
  • Driver’s license
  • Social security number

If applicable:

  • Referral forms from your physician
  • Worker’s compensation information
  • Co-pay or deductible
  • Pre-admission form
  • Advance directive

If I need medical attention but cannot afford it, what can I do?

No one is turned away from CRMC needing emergency care. We direct patients to Financial Counselors located in the Admitting Department who will work with you to develop a payment plan, help you apply for Medical Assistance, or, if you qualify, arrange for free or reduced-pay care.

Can I fill out any required paperwork before I get there?

No. All forms are completed electronically on-site.

Why do members of my treatment team keep asking for my name and date of birth?

Confirming your identity is a safety precaution. Anyone providing you with medical care must verify your identity to make sure the right patient is receiving the appropriate care. Redundant sources of information reduce the potential for errors. The first step toward keeping you safe is each staff member consistently confirming your identity.

Why is my provider looking at the computer so often?

CRMC utilizes an electronic health record system that supports your care by providing and recording treatment plans, order sets, and medications.

What do I need to tell the members of my treatment team?

You should inform the staff of anything relevant to your care, including how you’re feeling and any changes from day to day. Share your medical history, your family’s medical history, current prescriptions, and any allergies. Let them know how you react to medications and treatments. Finally, share your anxieties and concerns so they can help you manage them effectively.

How do I advocate for my loved one?

To be a strong advocate, you must be knowledgeable about your loved one’s needs and willing to speak up on his or her behalf. At CRMC, we encourage you to broach sensitive topics and address your questions and concerns with members of the treatment team. Your voice is incredibly important to us. As an advocate, you may also have certain legal responsibilities as outlined in a healthcare power of attorney document.
You can also contact one of our Patient Advocates at 218-545-5380 or email*
*Please do not include protected health information such as a date of birth.

Can I bring flowers or gifts to a patient at CRMC?

Gifts are allowed in most units. Flowers are allowed on all units except the Intensive Care Unit. Special visitor restrictions are in place during COVID and flu seasons. Ask a member of your care team for more information.

How can I find out the condition of a patient?

A patient’s immediate family members can call Patient Information at 218-546-7000.

How can I find a doctor nearby?

Visit our provider directory or call your nearest CRMC location, and we can help you find one.
