During your online pre-registration with us, we will help you complete the Birth Certificate Worksheet. During your stay, you will also be asked to verify the information on the worksheet, as the birth certificate must be completed and filed before your discharge. With your permission, we can process the paperwork to apply for a Social Security card for your baby. There is no charge for this service. The Social Security card will be mailed to you about 11 weeks after your baby's birth certificate is filed.
For more information or a physician referral, call (888) 828-9580 or find a doctor near you.
