The Closest Weekday Before Surgery
The hospital will contact you the business day prior to your scheduled procedure
to verify your arrival and surgery time.
Your Surgery Time May Change
Please remain available by telephone on the day
of surgery, so we may contact you if your time changes. This is very important-Surgery times often change.
If you would like us to communicate
directly with your designated support person
and/or would like to be contacted at a phone number other than the one provided by
your physician’s office, please contact the
Pre-Admission Clinic at (360) 330-8612.
All surgery times are based on best
estimates for the length of each procedure. Changes to your time may occur due to
emergencies or procedures taking more
or less time than anticipated. Each patient is unique, so there can be significant variations from the estimated time.
Please call the hospital if you have
not been contacted by 5 p.m. on the
business day prior to your surgery.
- If you will be an outpatient, call the Surgical Short Stay Unit at (360) 330-8526.
- If you will be an inpatient, call the Pre-Admission Clinic at (360) 330-8612.
