Checking in for Your Child’s Procedure or Surgery

  • If your child is having a surgery, radiology procedure like a MRI, diagnostic procedure such as a catheterization, or laboratory services, get a visitor’s badge at the hospital’s main entrance and go directly to the Treatment Center which is located in the main atrium behind the welcome desk.
  • If your child is arriving for a non-surgical inpatient stay, get a visitor’s badge at the hospital’s main entrance and go to the patient admitting office, just to the right of the Treatment Center.
  • Pregnant women coming to deliver a baby should go to Labor and Delivery on the 2nd floor of the West building. Please complete the check-in process prior to delivery.
