One important step we ask all new parents to take before the birth of their child is to pre-register at our hospital. Babies often arrive when THEY choose, so if you have pre-registered, it will make the process much easier for you.
About a week before your scheduled due date, please come to the admissions department on the first floor of the hospital to complete the registration process. Make sure you have all insurance cards with you at the time you pre-register. You may visit this page for more information about our registration process.
If you have pre-registered, when you arrive at the hospital to have your baby, simply take Elevator 5 by the Emergency Room up to the labor and delivery department on the second floor.
