Moms-to-be Can Now Pre-Register Online at ARHS!

dreamstime_6430800In an effort to make life better for expectant moms, Appalachian Regional Healthcare System has added a pre-registration form on their website. The form allows moms-to-be to complete the pre-registration process from the comfort of their home and reduces their risk of exposure to airborne illnesses like the seasonal flu and the Novel H1N1 flu.

Patients who have a scheduled C-section will still need to schedule a pre-admission appointment at the New Life Center (Cannon Memorial Hospital) or Marchese Birthing Center (Watauga Medical Center) prior to their delivery.

When expectant moms arrive at the hospital to deliver, Admissions will make a copy of their insurance card and photo ID and have a consent form ready for their signature.
