Preadmission/Birth Registration Process at Evans Army Community Hospital (EACH)  

Mothers-To-Be are encouraged to pre-admit one-two months before their estimated date of delivery.  Please ask your OB care provider to complete a “referral” sheet (DA Form 2985, Admission and Coding Information Sheet).  Bring this sheet to Admissions & Dispositions (A&D), Rm. 1050.  A&D is located on the ground floor of the main hospital, between the Lab and Radiology. A&D front desk is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

Completion of a Birth Certificate Worksheet is a requirement of OB preadmission. Please list parent(s) names, address, dates and states/country of birth, social security numbers and check all applicable statistics fields on this form.  Once preadmission is completed, all requirements are in place for future mother and newborn admissions. When the time comes Mom will only need to report to Labor & Delivery (L&D), 3rd floor.  L&D staff will notify A&D of Mom’s admission. Please be sure to preadmit! 

Once the baby is born, the Birth Certificate Worksheet goes to the Birth Registrar. An electronic record is created in the Colorado State Vital Records database for their newborn.
