To make appointments, Memorial is providing two options.
People who have been a patient at any Memorial facility can use the MyChart portal. MHS employees and medical staff can use this option, too.
- Go to your MyChart.
- Programmed in your chart is a section titled “appointments” to make an appointment.
- Choose a date, time, and location that is convenient.
People who have not been a Memorial patient, or do not have MyChart availability, can call Memorial’s Centralized Scheduling at (954) 276-4340 to make an appointment.
The call center is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is closed on the weekend.
