Pre-Admission Testing Center

In preparation for your surgical procedure at one of our hospitals, and in compliance with the Joint Commission, you will be required to complete a Preoperative History and Physical examination within 30 days of your scheduled surgical date. This may be completed by either your primary care provider or a provider at the Pre-Admission Testing Center (PATC).

In preparation for your surgery

  • A Registered Nurse will contact you via telephone within 30 days of your surgical procedure to review your current medications including over-the counter supplements, medical and surgical history as well as general questions regarding your mobility, cultural values, beliefs and practices that may impact your hospitalization.

During your appointment, you will

  • Meet with a Registered Nurse and/or Provider
  • Receive instructions regarding your pre-surgery medications
  • Complete any necessary preoperative testing
  • Possibly be referred to visit a specialist prior to your surgical procedure (for example a cardiologist or pulmonologist)
