What to Bring

When you come to the hospital, please bring:

  • Personal items, such as sleepwear and toiletries
  • A list of medications you are taking
  • Insurance information
  • Photo ID
  • Copies of your advance directives, if you have them

Please leave at home:

  • Valuables such as jewelry or large amounts of cash. We regret that we cannot be responsible for these items. You may need your checkbook or credit card at the time of admission, but please send them home afterward with a family member or friend.
  • TVs, radios, hair dryers and other electrical devices.

Insurance Pre-Approval

Most insurance plans require pre-approval for hospitalization. You are responsible for working with your doctor to make sure you are pre-approved. However, once you arrive at the hospital, we will talk to your insurance company to make sure that continued stay requirements are being met. Please note pre-approval does not guarantee payment.


Pre-registering for your hospital visit saves you time. To pre-register, call 404-686-1573 (Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 8 p.m.) no more than 30 days before your admission.


  • Our visitor parking deck is located next to the hospital, with covered access at level F.
  • Valet parking services are available from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday.
  • Self-parking is also available at both the Linden Avenue and Peachtree Street entrances and requires a validation stamp.
  • Long-term parking cards are sold at the Linden Avenue cashier booth and the visitor parking deck booth.

Blood Donations

If you are having elective surgery, your physician may recommend that you donate your own blood at the hospital prior to admission. Family and friends may also donate blood for your use through the American Red Cross or another volunteer donor center. For more information or questions concerning blood donation, call the American Red Cross or the Emory Crawford Long Hospital.
