Overlook Medical Center: The Patient Experience
After delivering your baby at Overlook Medical Center, you will be given a birth certificate worksheet. It is important to complete this form carefully. Print clearly and double-check your work. The information on the worksheet will be used for your baby’s legal birth certificate. Once the birth certificate has been sent to the City of Summit Office of Vital Statistics, your baby’s name can be changed only by court order.
After it is completed at the hospital, the birth certificate is sent to the Office of Vital Statistics, where it will be registered with the state and permanently stored. It takes about 14 days from the baby’s date of birth for this to happen.
To obtain a birth certificate, you can go to the Office of Vital Statistics or mail in a request:
