Welcoming a new baby is a cause for celebration and joy at CHI St. Luke’s Health–The Woodlands Hospital. Our desire is to make your birthing experience pleasant and your stay here at CHI St. Luke’s Health–The Woodlands Hospital memorable. Preparing for your new addition is important as well.
The first steps to prepare for your delivery is to pre-register at the hospital. Registering prior to your delivery will serve two purposes. When you arrive in labor, your admission process will be hastened and your delivery of care expedited. Registering early will also allow you the opportunity to discuss any financial or birth certificate questions you may have. The Family Birthing Center Registration and Birth Certificate Registry office is open Monday through Friday from 6:15 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., and no appointment is necessary. You will meet with members of the Patient Access Services (PAS) team several times during your hospital stay for various reasons, such as taking care of financial arrangements, finishing up any necessary hospital paperwork, and completing the birth certificate or acknowledgement of paternity for the baby.
In order to ensure the smoothest admission process, we ask that you visit us early to register. Please complete your hospital registration between 20–28 weeks of pregnancy.
You must complete your pre-registration with PAS in person. The Welcome Center is located in the Main Lobby on the first floor. It takes approximately 30–45 minutes to discuss and sign hospital admission paperwork. At your preregistration visit, we will need to make a copy of your photo ID and your current insurance card. Our insurance verifiers will be more than happy to verify your benefits so that you are aware of any required deposit prior to your hospital stay. We do ask if a deposit is required that payment is made or arranged by your 7th month of pregnancy.
We look forward to taking care of you and assisting you with any of your needs. Please feel free to contact PAS with any questions or concerns you may have at 936-266-2000.
