Registering for services-to-be-rendered is a mandatory procedure that enables our staff to learn more about you before any type of treatment is administered.

You may register on the day of your visit or preregister now for certain services in order to expedite this step upon arrival. Registration takes place in our Admissions departments, which are located at all Tanner Health System facilities.
