Please be sure to bring your driver’s license (or other forms of identification) and insurance card to the hospital at the time of admission.

As you arrive to the Main Entrance of St. Vincent’s Medical Center, your spouse or birthing partner may park in the visitors parking lot directly across from the main entrance. Upon entering the main entrance to the hospital, you and your support person should go to the security desk. A hospital employee will bring you and your support person to the elevators and direct you to level 5.

Between the hours of 8pm-6am, please enter the hospital through the Emergency Room entrance.

You and your support person will arrive on level 5, where a member of the team will complete the arrival process. The nurse will assess you, begin the admission process, and talk with your doctor.

For more information regarding your upcoming delivery, please visit our website or call the unit at 475.210.6080.

Financial Arrangements

Hospital insurance plans frequently do not provide full coverage of your hospital bill. With the exception of Medicare and Medicaid, your hospitalization coverage is a contract between you and your insurance company. While we will cooperate to the fullest in expediting your claim, you are ultimately responsible for payment of your account in full.

Your plan may have special requirements, such as a second surgical opinion or pre-certification for certain tests or procedures. It is your responsibility to make sure the requirements of your plan have been met. If your plan’s requirements are not followed, you may be financially responsible for all or part of the services rendered in the Medical Center. Some physician specialists may not participate in your health-care plan, and their services may not be covered.

Hartford HealthCare (HHC) provides financial assistance to all eligible individuals who meet the criteria in our Financial Assistance Policy.

Your questions about the Financial Assistance Policy and the Application for Financial Assistance, the terms and eligibility can be requested in person through any HHC employee, via telephone 1.888.515.5544 or on our website.
