Pre-Surgery Patient Education
The Patient Education Center is a special service for patients facing scheduled surgery. Offered Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., this free evaluation and education service provides the patient with important information to help your hospital and surgical experience go more smoothly. Participants complete pre-admission hospital paperwork, receive information about the scheduled procedure, pre- and post-operative care, pain management, incision care and follow-up. Pre-surgical tests such as lab work, EKG and X-rays may be done at this time. By participating in this program, patients can bypass the admission process on the day of surgery and proceed directly to Surgery Pre-Op or Day Surgery. For more information, please call (903) 606-3000.
