Our scheduler will call you to arrange a Presurgical Screening Appointment, which you will attend approximately 3-4 weeks before your surgery.
The appointment will take about 3 hours, and will include: blood work, urine sample, EKG, X-rays (if requested by your surgeon), health history screening, presurgical education, and MyChart signup.
Bring the following with you to your Presurgical Screening Appointment:
- Your surgeon’s name, date of surgery, and type of surgery
- Medication names, dosages, how often and time(s) of day you take them; this includes vitamins and over-the-counter medications
- Insurance cards, photo ID, health care proxy or living will (if you have one); if you do not have a health care proxy form, we can provide one
- Your surgical pre-admission form received from your surgeon’s office
Presurgical Screening is located on the main level (Floor 2) of the hospital. Enter the hospital through the main lobby and check in at the information desk.
