Main Hospital, 1st floor
Located in the Main Entrance of the Hospital on the 1st floor.
Once you are scheduled for either an outpatient procedure or an inpatient admission, you will be contacted by a representative from our Admissions Department to verify your demographic and insurance information. Some procedures require insurance pre-authorization. If you are scheduled for surgery, you will receive an additional call from a nurse to discuss your procedure to your scheduled appointment.
Labor & Delivery Admissions
You can save time when you are in labor by pre-registering before your expected due date for delivery. You may pick up a pre-registration form from your physician’s office, at the time of a Sibley Memorial Hospital prenatal tour or at Admissions in the main lobby. Please fill out the form completely and call us at 202-660-5798 if you have any questions.
Preparing for Discharge
Discharge is at 10 a.m. Please plan your transportation home in advance. Your physician will provide you with discharge instructions and prescriptions, if applicable. Your nurse will review them with you. Check your personal items before leaving. If you deposited valuables with Security, ask your nurse to notify a security officer. A staff member or Volunteer will accompany you to the main lobby.
Discharged patients check out at the Cashier’s Office on the main floor, Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. – 4:15 p.m. After-hours checkout is at the Admissions Office.
