Pre-Admission Testing

Before your admission at a facility, a physical exam and diagnostic testing such as blood work, EKG, stress tests, and chest x-rays may be required prior to your surgical procedure. Your surgeon and our anesthesia team will determine exactly what pre-admission testing is needed for you.

Either a member of our Pre-Admission Testing Department staff will call you to schedule an appointment, or your surgeon’s office will schedule it for you.

On the day of your pre-admission testing, our technicians and clinicians will guide you through the tests that have been ordered by your surgical team. Our multidisciplinary team of clinicians will help prepare you for your upcoming procedure. Testing will take approximately one and a half to two hours to complete depending on your medical history.

In addition to drawing blood and running tests, our Pre-Admission Testing Department will work with you to truly optimize your care and provide necessary education. By utilizing the time prior to your surgery, we can address and correct any issues which will enhance your safety and improve your recovery after surgery.

On the day of your pre-admission testing, please bring the following information with you:

  • Driver’s license or identification and insurance cards.
  • A list of allergies.
  • A list of medication and dosages you take on a regular basis, including pain medications, vitamins, herbal supplements and other over the counter medications.
  • Results of any recent tests, such as a stress test or an echocardiogram, done at other hospitals, physician’s offices or facilities.
  • Name, address and phone numbers of all your doctors, including specialists.
  • Any previous problems or reaction to anesthesia, including your family history.
  • The name and phone number of your preferred pharmacy.
