Arrival Information (Perinatal Evaluation and Treatment)

undefined Please make arrangements ahead of time for childcare for siblings when coming to the hospital for labor and delivery.

Important Paperwork for the Hospital

Your OB will send a copy of the necessary paperwork to the hospital. Necessary paperwork includes: Hepatitis B, Group B Strep and HIV status documents.

Please bring to the hospital:

  • A valid picture ID for both parents
  • Your insurance card
  • A list of current medications (as and any other necessary paperwork from the obstetrician’s office.)


When you arrive, parking is available in our visitors’ lot located in front of the hospital. After parking, all maternity patients should enter through the Cooperman Family Pavilion/Main Entrance. From there, you will be directed to our maternity unit on the third floor of the central building.

Finding Your Way in the Hospital

Take the front elevator to the third floor and register at the security desk. Security will then direct you to the PET UNIT (Perinatal Evaluation and Treatment Unit). The PET Unit is the obstetric area where you will be evaluated and either admitted into the hospital or discharged home.

If you are admitted and in labor you will be transferred to the Labor and Delivery Unit.

If we need to observe you for a longer period of time and you are not in active labor you may be admitted to the High Risk Antepartum Unit.

Ask Us!

Patient education is a priority for our organization. Education begins upon admission and continues throughout your hospital stay. We encourage you to actively ask questions and participate in your care.

From the PET unit, you may be transferred to Labor and Delivery.
