The Admitting Department is found on the first level of the hospital, to the right rear of the lobby. You'll find a warm welcome and answers to your questions about your hospital stay.
Most admissions take place between 5:30 a.m. and noon. Your physician
will assign a specific time. Please bring health coverage information
(insurance, Medicare or Medi-Cal card) and authorization for service
if required by your insurance carrier.
Before You Arrive
To ensure that your hospital stay is as pleasant as possible, a pre-admission representative will call to answer your questions and obtain insurance information. If you do not hear from us, please call (213) 977-2481 and speak to a pre-admission representative.
Pre-Admission and Testing
Your physician may request certain tests - such as blood sampling, EKG and X-rays - before your admission. For your convenience, specially trained personnel in our Pre-Admissions Testing Center (located in the Admitting Department) will perform all ordered tests.
What Not to Bring
Valuables, Belongings & Medications
Good Samaritan Hospital cannot assume responsibility for jewelry and valuables (including cash and credit cards) unless deposited in our vault.
Your physicians will prescribe all necessary medications during your stay. Do not bring any medications to the hospital.
