Why are wait times for the Women’s Assessment Center important?
Our Women’s Assessment Center is where you will go if you need to be evaluated for a possible unplanned admission to the hospital. We know how stressful coming to the hospital can be, and we know that minutes can feel like hours when you are waiting, especially when you may be feeling anxious and unsure about what to expect next. Our goal is for patients to be taken as quickly as possible to the Assessment Center upon arrival, with minimal wait time in the lobby.

What can you do as a patient?
- Your time is valuable to us. We encourage you to pre-register at the Pavilion for Women by your 20th week of pregnancy. This will allow us to have important information already available should you need to visit the Women’s Assessment Center and will help us reduce delays in your care.
- Consider taking a tour or registering for classes that will help you know what to expect as you prepare for your admission. Knowing where to park, bringing your birth plan, and going over this hospital bag checklist may help you feel more prepared for your trip to the hospital.
