Welcome to Soldiers' / What to Bring

What to Bring  



Patients will be asked to produce photo identification (ID) upon registration. Please bring two pieces of ID with you for your visit. Accepted forms of ID are:

  • Your Ministry of Health Card
  • Your red-and-white health card (without photo) accompanied by government issued identification such as Drivers Licence or Passport.

If you do not have a government issued ID, student cards, employee cards, or photo bus passes will be accepted. Patients without photo ID will still be registered and receive care, however presentation of photo ID whenever possible will help us keep you and your loved ones safe!


Along with your Ministry of Health Card please bring proof of any hospital insurance you may carry.

You will need to bring slippers, or shoes and socks, a robe, nightgown or pajamas, and toilet articles such as toothbrush and paste, shaving equipment, etc. 

  • You may want to bring reading material
