Preparing For Surgery

When surgeries are planned in advance, most patients come into the Hospital on the day of the surgery. Upon arrival, please enter the Hospital using the main entrance and take the main elevators to the second floor. The Surgery reception desk will be on your left as you exit the elevator. A staff member or volunteer will be there to greet you.

C-section patients will be prepared for surgery in the Family Birthing Center on the 3rd floor.

The links on the left will help you prepare for your surgery and will answer many questions that you may have prior to your surgery.
