Maternity Admissions

When it's time to come to the hospital and welcome your new baby, we’re ready for you. Our mother-baby care team is standing by and ready to help.


At El Camino Hospital, we're dedicated to making your check-in experience as seamless as possible. Once we receive your registration, we’ll process your information, verify your insurance, and make arrangements for your admission to the hospital. We recommend you register at about 24 to 30 weeks gestation.

Have this information ready when it is time to register your upcoming delivery:

  • Emergency contact information
  • Insurance details
  • OB or Midwife's first and last name

  • Preferred pharmacy address

Please follow the steps below to register for your delivery using myCare; your myCare profile contains information from your medical record. Here you will have access to managing your upcoming visits, access test results, request prescription refills, and many other features.
