Welcome to South Nassau
To help make your admission into our Maternity Unit run as smoothly as possible, here are some suggestions.
Reminder: Please contact your insurance company and enroll your newborn within 30 days of delivery.
What to bring with you:
What to leave home
If you are not sure if we participate with your insurer, please call your insurer for confirmation - and for any special considerations. For example, most patients are required to obtain their Lab and Radiology services at a dedicated facility. Your insurer may require you to pay for any service provided that is not covered by your contract.
If you do not have insurance, or are unable to pay for the hospital services provided, our Financial Assistance Service may be able to help.
Understand your rights as a patient
To help you understand these rights, the New York State Department of Health and its Consumer Health Information Council published a booklet "Your Rights as a Hospital Patient." It will be provided to you upon your admission to the hospital. However, if you would like a copy of this booklet before your admission, please call the Admitting Office at 516-632-3990 or contact us.
