Inpatient Care Centres

If you are an Ontario resident, your OHIP coverage pays for a standard hospital room in an inpatient care centre. The number of beds in a standard room varies between different units. Learn more about the Princess Margaret inpatient units »

You can upgrade to a semi-private room, which has 2 beds, or a private room with 1 bed. There is a cost to upgrading your room. Call the Information Desk for more details. If you have private insurance it may cover some or all of the cost of a room upgrade. Check your insurance policy to find out.

You will need to sign a room request form and provide a credit card imprint when you make your room request.

Your choice of room may not be available when you are admitted. If this occurs, we will move you into one as soon as possible.
