Get all the details you need to plan and prepare for your delivery at Winnie Palmer Hospital.
Pre-Register for Your Childbirth
We’re excited to be the preferred healthcare facility for so many women choosing to give birth at Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies each year.
To prepare for your delivery at Winnie Palmer Hospital, we ask that you pre-register for your upcoming stay with us.
What Pre-Registration Involves
Pre-registration involves completing all of the patient registration forms required for your upcoming delivery and stay with us. This will include:
- Providing your demographic and insurance information
- Signing forms related to you and your baby's medical care
- Completing a birth certificate questionnaire
- Having one of our financial counselors witness your signing these forms
Because of the need to witness your signature, pre-registration needs to be done in-person at the Winnie Palmer Hospital Patient Business department located in the hospital lobby. Please bring your insurance card and photo ID to pre-register.
Upon completing the pre-registration process, you will receive a pre-registration card. Please be sure to bring this card with you when admitted to the hospital to give birth.
When to Pre-Register
You should plan to pre-register for your delivery at Winnie Palmer Hospital between 25 weeks and 30 weeks of your pregnancy.
The Patient Business department is open for pre-registration from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, Monday–Friday at our main Admitting Office, located on the first floor of Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies. Typically, our busiest hours for pre-registration are from 11:00 am to 4:30 pm. Therefore, for shorter wait times, we recommend pre-registering between 8:00 am and 11 am.
If you receive care in our Labor and Delivery Triage Department at any time during your pregnancy, we will make every attempt to complete your pre-registration at that time. If you have any questions regarding whether or not you have already pre-registered, please call 321.843.1800.
When completing your pre-registration, you will have the opportunity to schedule a tour of our birth suites and service amenities with our Concierge Services department. Please let our Patient Business staff know if you would like to schedule a tour upon completing your pre-registration. You may also call Concierge Services at 321.843.1130 to schedule a tour.
If you decide to pre-register on the day of your scheduled tour, be sure to arrive at least one hour in advance of your tour with your insurance card and photo ID during regular pre-registration hours.
