El Camino Hospital strives to make the registration process for inpatient and outpatient procedures as convenient as possible. If you are scheduled for admission, your physician's office staff will give you an admission packet with instructions to return it to the hospital before the day of your scheduled admission.

On the day of your admission, be sure to bring your insurance card or a copy of the front and back of the card with you that day. The information you will be asked to provide includes: physician name; your name; sex; maiden name or other married names admitted under previously; address; phone; employer; name of relative or other contact; and insurance information. You have the option of registering with our PalmSecure authentication system, too, to speed subsequent admissions and help ensure your privacy.

You may want download a PDF of hospital's pre-admission record form. Complete the form and bring it with you on the day of your admission (you will need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to open and print this document).
