How does the COVID-19 pandemic impact upcoming appointments?
During this time of public health concern, some appointments may take place via telehealth wherever it's possible and appropriate. For all in-person visits, you can feel confident that our locations are safe. We've taken significant measures to minimize the risk of the spread of COVID-19 and worked tirelessly to ensure that our patients are protected. Visit our COVID-19 safety page for more information.
If you have flu-like symptoms, including fever or cough, and have an upcoming appointment, please call your provider to let them know before visiting any of our hospital or outpatient care locations.
Patients who are scheduled for a major heart, vascular, orthopedic or spine surgery; thoracic, intra-abdominal or craniotomy procedure or any other procedure with anticipated major fluid or blood shifts may be seen here.
A nurse will collect information about your health, fitness, previous operations, allergies and more in order to individualize your care to your specific needs. It helps prepare the surgeon, the anesthesiologist and you by identifying any potential anesthetic, surgical or post-operative complications. You may also undergo an electrocardiogram (ECG), blood or urine tests or other tests. The assessment length varies depending on the type of operation that you are having.
