The 225-bed West Hills Hospital & Medical Center is coming into the digital age with online pre-registration now available to certain patients.

Patients who can pre-register include those with a procedure already scheduled who wish to pre-register online, obstetrics patients who would like to pre-register for labor and delivery, and patients who need to request a screening mammography appointment.

The online pre-registration tool is expected to give patients more control, greater flexibility and increased efficiency with the pre-registration process.

“In this digital-ready society where quick and easy business transactions are the norm, online pre-registration offers our patients a convenient and secure method for their healthcare scheduling,” Beverly Gilmore, chief executive officer of West Hills Hospital said in a statement. “Pre-registration will simplify the registration process when they arrive at West Hills Hospital, and help to ensure that we have the most accurate and updated personal and insurance information.”
