The Presurgical Care Center offers "one-stop shopping" for a wide range of procedures, including blood and urine tests, EKGs and X-rays, that you may need prior to being admitted to the hospital or undergoing surgery. The center also offers presurgical patients a central location for anesthesia consultation, nursing evaluation, sharing their medical history and getting a physical, when necessary.
Providing one location for all presurgical requirements can help reduce anxiety for pateints before undergoing a procedure as it enables them to meet and interact with their anesthesiologist and other members of the surgical team in advance.
On the day of their procedure, patients will already know the environment, their surgical team and what to expect. Having tests and evaluations in advance reduces delays on the day of surgery as the results will be within the hospital system.
