The day of your procedure or surgery

Arrival instructions:

Inpatient, outpatient or sugery procedures
Enter through the hospital’s main entrance. You may stop by the front desk in our main lobby, and staff will be glad to escort you to the registration lobby. If you know where the registration lobby is located, you may go directly there.

If you pre-registered or are a former patient, registration will ask you to review the information for any changes or corrections, including address, phone number, social security number, date of birth, medical information, insurance card, etc., to confirm the accuracy of the information. Always bring in a photo ID and your insurance card(s). You will also be asked to confirm you have received the patient information packet which includes Notice of Privacy Practices, Patient Rights, etc. Registration personnel will also verify your primary care physician and other physician information.

After you are registered, you will be escorted to the pre-operative area and to your own private room. This area is staffed by nurses whose primary task is to prepare you for your procedure or surgery. Time permitting, family members may visit the patient on a limited basis in the patient’s pre-operative room prior to the procedure or surgery.
