Preparing for Surgery

Taking a few moments to prepare for your surgery will help us provide you with the best quality care.

When your surgeon schedules your procedure, a representative from Pre-admission Testing Center (PATC) will contact you to ask a series of health related questions to individualize your plan of care. If you need blood work or additional testing, we will schedule an appointment prior to surgery.

We will ask you to arrive 1 ½ - 2-hours prior to your surgery start time. After you check-in at registration, you will be directed to the Day Surgery Center on the second floor of the hospital and escorted to your private room.

This time is used to review your admission history for any changes, to obtain any additional testing ordered by your surgeon or anesthesiologist, to perform pre-operative patient preparations and provide you with education on what to expect before and after your surgery.
