The Sharf Admitting Center is located in the Schuster Lobby at the main entrance at 75 Francis Street, behind the information desk. A receptionist will greet you and direct you to an admitting interviewer who will:
Complete your admission paperwork
Obtain and/or confirm insurance and other information
Collect a deposit, if necessary
Help you check your belongings
Please remember to bring your insurance card.
Bring a list of your current medications
You also may have laboratory work done during admission.
Please note that although you will have a scheduled time for your surgery, emergencies or other issues could cause that time to change.
When you arrive at the hospital in labor, enter through the main lobby at 75 Francis Street and check in at the Obstetrical Admitting office also located in the main lobby. An admitting interviewer will complete your admission paperwork and escort you to the Center for Labor and Birth in our Mary Horrigan Connors Center for Women's Health. The obstetrical admitting staff is on-duty 24 hours-a-day and will make all the arrangements necessary for a swift and comfortable admission to the hospital.
Being Admitted from the Emergency Department
You may be admitted to the hospital from the Emergency Department. If you were a patient in the Emergency Department, your doctor may determine that your condition requires you to stay in the hospital, based on the examination he or she did and any blood tests and x-rays that you may have had done.
It may take some time before we are able to move you out of the Emergency Department to a bed on one of the inpatient units.
The Admitting staff will locate a bed in the most appropriate unit for you.
The doctor who cared for you in the Emergency Department will update your doctor about your condition, as well as other doctors and nurses who will be caring for you in the hospital.
Additional tests may be required before you leave the Emergency Department.
Same Day Admission
For certain surgeries and other procedures, patients are admitted to the hospital on the same day the procedure takes place. Your doctor will tell you if you will be admitted on the same day. If so, on the working day before your procedure, please confirm your procedure and arrival times by calling (617) 732-7625 between 3 p.m. - 6 p.m.
