A Birth Certificate form must be completed prior to discharge. If you have any questions, our Mother-Baby staff can assist you. The Birth Certificate Secretary can be reached at 914-681-2439.
The original birth certificate will be sent directly to you from the Bureau of Vital Statistics of the City of White Plains. A Social Security release form will also be provided so that your child will be issued, free of charge, a Social Security Number.
The Hospital does not issue birth certificates but it does send information about births to the City of White Plains which is the legal entity that issues birth certificates to those born at the Hospital. If you need a copy of a birth certificate, you need to request it from the City of White Plains. Here is a link to the City of White Plains website.
