Arriving at West Penn Hospital

When the big day comes, where you should enter the hospital and where to park depends on whether you’re in labor or having a scheduled delivery (C-section or induced labor).

If you are in labor

If you’re in labor or your doctor tells you to come to the hospital for care (and you’re NOT coming for a scheduled C-section or induced labor):

  • Enter at the Emergency Department entrance on South Millvale Avenue. 
  • Your partner or driver can drive up to the Emergency Department entrance and help you into the building.
  • One of our nurses will meet you in the Emergency Department and take you to the Labor and Delivery unit.
  • Your  partner or driver will need to move the vehicle to the parking garage on South Millvale Avenue while you are being admitted.
