Admission & Registration

Admitting your child to our hospital

Your child’s physician’s office will usually schedule admission to the hospital or one of its outpatient clinics for you, and provide you with all of the information you’ll need.

Before being admitted to the hospital, your child must first be registered with one of our admissions representatives. You will be given specific instructions on how early to arrive, as we will need to allow time for registration.

In most areas of the hospital you will register your child at the bedside, but this can vary based on your child’s hospital unit or required procedure.
