When you come to the RMH, you can choose to be treated as a private or public patient.
Public patients are not required to pay for their stay in hospital and are treated by a team of doctors nominated by the hospital.
Private patients can be treated by a doctor of their choice, provided that doctor has a right to practice at this hospital. Private patients will be billed according to their health insurance.
