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.
- AHN West Penn offers free valet for day of delivery and discharge for new parents. Valet parking is available at the emergency department entrance.
