Thank you for choosing ST. FRANCIS eastside for your upcoming delivery! Pre-registering for your hospital stay allows your admission to happen quickly and smoothly. We strongly recommend that you pre-register by your fourth month of pregnancy so that all paperwork is completed well in advance of your delivery.

If you pre-register, then you will only need to confirm your personal information and show your photo ID and insurance card when you arrive at the hospital.

Step One

Complete the pre-admission form and give it to the staff at your OB-GYN's office. You can download the pre-admission form here and bring it with you to your first OB office visit, or you can wait and fill it out at the OB-GYN's office.You will also need to provide your photo ID and insurance card to be copied, and your OB-GYN's office staff will submit the form and the copies on your behalf.

A registration packet for you to read and keep on file will also be provided by your OB-GYN's office at the time you complete your pre-admission form. Please look over this information carefully as it will probably answer many questions you may have about your hospital stay.

Step Two

Attend the Great Expectations maternity orientation class. St. Francis offers a free, 30 minute walking tour called Great Expectations that will give you all the ins and outs of what to expect during your hospital stay. During this tour you will receive confirmation that your pre-admission to the hospital  is complete. If we are missing any information, we will get it from you at that time.
