For Patients | Pre-Admisson Testing

The Pre-Admission Testing Center (PATC) is a unique unit that is dedicated to meeting the concerns of our pre-operative patients and their families.

A visit to the PATC gives each patient having surgery at Hartford Hospital, the opportunity to incorporate all registration, testing, health history reviews and teaching into one visit.

Appointments are made at the patients convenience. They can be scheduled to coordinate with other office visits, blood donation or testing needed.

Services provided by the Pre-Admission Testing Center include:

  • Blood Drawing (phlebotomy)
  • EKG studies
  • Health history screening
  • Peri-Operative teaching by a registered nurse
  • Anesthesia screening
  • Discharge planning
  • Coordination of specific ancillary services on an individual basis

Phone interviews are used for those not coming to the PATC. PATC staff makes calls to patients within a few days of scheduled surgery. Calls include health screening and peri-operative teaching.
