A pre-registration appointment will help make your stay easier and less stressful. If your physician's office has not made a pre-registration appointment for you, please call 310-514-5235 and we will schedule one at your convenience. You will meet with a caring patient access representative who will make sure everything is in order. Your doctor may also schedule routine medical tests such as laboratory tests or X-rays, before your hospitalization. However, other routine tests may be done on the day of your admission.

You may want to bring a family member or trusted friend to your pre-registration appointment. We can help answer questions you or they may have then.

Please Bring the Following with You on Your Admission Day:

  • Current Insurance Card - or Credit Card or Cash for Payment or Deposit
  • Picture ID
  • Insurance Authorization (if you have received one)
  • Physician Orders or Paperwork
  • Advance Directive

If you need any assistance or further information call Admitting Department – San Pedro 310-514-5235.

You'll Feel Right at Home in Our Rooms

We do our best to make your stay a comfortable one. We have both private and double occupancy rooms, which are assigned depending on availability and your medical needs. If you would like a private room and one is not available at the beginning of your stay, we will make every effort to provide one as soon as possible.

If you have a private room, an adult may stay overnight with you. (Unfortunately, children may not spend the night). Please let us know as soon as possible if you will have someone rooming with you. Overnight guests are not allowed in semi-private rooms.
