Admissions Process

Step 1 - Your physician arranges for your admission to St. Joseph Hospital

Your doctors will provide you details on when you should arrive at the hospital and where to report. If you are coming in for surgery, your physician will usually request that pre-operative tests be performed a few days prior to your hospitalization. If you have any questions regarding the donation of blood for surgery, please contact your physician.

Step 2 - Pre-registration

For your convenience, we offer online pre-registration for tests/procedures.

If you prefer not to pre-register online, you can call our Pre-Access Center, 714-771-8911, to pre-register or to discuss any questions that you might have. Our office hours are Mon - Fri, 8 a.m. - 8 p.m.

Obstetrics patients can also choose to complete the pre-registration packet they receive from their physicians. Once completed, the packet should be returned to:
