Patient Registration

One of our clinical leads can help walk you through registration during the Pre-Birth Check In meeting (information and sign-up instructions below). You can also pre-register.

Arriving for Your Delivery

Please enter the hospital through our main entrance (located next to the flagpole) between 5:00am and 10:00pm, unless directed by your health care provider to be seen elsewhere in the hospital. You can head straight up to the 2nd floor and check in with our nurses in the Labor & Delivery unit.

After our front entrance closes at 10:00pm, we ask that you enter the hospital through the Emergency Department entrance doors. The registration team will help you get up to the Labor & Delivery unit.

If you are instructed by your provider to be screened in the Emergency Department, please follow the signs on our campus road to the Emergency Department to be treated there.
