Swedish First Hill Instructions

Swedish First Hill Instructions

Checking in to Swedish First Hill

  • If you arrive between 5 a.m. and 11 p.m., park in the Broadway garage at 747 Broadway (drive down the ramp under the main hospital). We’ve reserved four parking spots for laboring moms — you’ll find them on the right as you enter the garage.
  • If you arrive between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m., park in the garage at the corner of Minor and James Streets and enter through the ER on Minor Ave. The Broadway garage is closed during these hours.
  • After arriving, a nurse will greet you and check you into the triage area.
  • Once you’re in your suite, your nurse will have you sign consent forms and ask you a few questions about your health and pregnancy history. She’ll check your blood pressure, temperature and pulse, the baby’s heart rate, and observe your contractions. She’ll take urine and blood samples, and possibly start an IV.
  • If you’ve made a birth plan or have any questions, concerns or requests, now is the time to share them with your nurse.
