What to Bring

Before You Arrive

University Hospital and the Women's & Children's Hospital offer a number of amenities to help you and your family feel as welcome and comfortable as possible during your stay with us. Before you arrive, be sure to pack a bag with any personal items you might need.

Registration Process & Items to Bring

Upon arrival to the hospital, our admissions staff will ask you to register.

We’ll walk you through the process step by step. To help the registration process go smoothly, please bring:

  • Personal identification with photo (examples include your driver's license, military ID or passport)
  • Medical insurance information
  • Full amount of medical insurance co-payment, deductibles or fees for service
  • Your current medications, including any over-the-counter medications, vitamins or herbs you may be taking

Your Personal Belongings

If you bring eyeglasses, contact lenses, dentures, prostheses or any medical equipment, please notify your nurse. We’ll keep track of these items during your stay.

Storing Valuables

To ease your admission to any of our hospitals, please do not bring valuable items such as jewelry or large sums of money. Leave valuables and excess property at home or with a family member. If you do have valuable items on you, please let your nurse or admissions specialist know. 

Valuable items will be inventoried and stored in the Admissions Office. We’ll record all your valuables on Form 95, which will be placed in your medical chart. You will be given a copy of the form in order to collect your belongings after discharge.
