Some scheduled procedures and surgeries may require pre-admission testing, which requires a doctor’s order. Pre-admission testing helps our staff evaluate your overall health in preparation for your medical or surgical procedure.

After your physician has scheduled your surgical or medical procedure, a pre-admission testing specialist will contact you to schedule an appointment. Usually, pre-admission testing is scheduled to occur within one to two weeks prior to your procedure, but it can vary depending on the type of procedure you are undergoing.

Further information is available on our surgical registration page.
