Surgical admission process
Once your doctor refers you for surgery or a procedure at UCHealth Broomfield Hospital, your doctor’s office will typically schedule a pre-admission appointment for you. This appointment is required before surgery.
Call 303.460.6000 as soon as possible to schedule your pre-admission appointment if your doctor’s office has not done so already.
During this appointment, you will:
- Meet with an admissions clerk to verify that all paperwork is accurate.
- Learn the total out-of-pocket expense of your procedure.
- Meet with a pre-admission nurse who will explain what to expect the day of surgery and which of your currently prescribed medications can be taken before surgery.
You may also complete any required diagnostic tests after meeting with the nurse. Ask your doctor if you can eat or drink before your appointment.
What to bring
Bring the following items to your pre-admission appointment:
- A list of the medicines (prescription and non-prescription) you are currently taking, along with their dosage amounts and when you take them. You may bring the bottles or containers. Include supplements, vitamin, and herbs you routinely take. This medication form can help you create an up-to-date medication list.
- Any forms you were asked to bring with you.
- Your insurance information and Medicare card, if you have one.
- A copy of your living will or advance directive, which will be placed in your medical record.
On the day of your procedure or surgery, please bring:

The case management staff at UCHealth Broomfield Hospital performs several functions. We work with you, the patient, and your family as an advocate during your hospital stay. We will assist and help you plan for your discharge home or to another facility if appropriate. We will work with your insurance to maximize your benefits and pre-authorize home needs as necessary. Your discharge plan might include the need for other services such as home oxygen, medical equipment or home-care services. The case management staff will assist in making these arrangements.
All of our services are coordinated through your physician. We work closely with the ancillary staff to determine a safe discharge plan.
You can contact the case management office at 303.460.6068 or you can ask to speak to a case manager anytime during your stay.
UCHealth Broomfield Hospital encourages you to ask questions about your care during your stay. If we don’t meet your expectations or if you have a specific concern during your stay, please let your caregiver know. You may also request to speak with the department manager or hospital supervisor.

Emergency Virtual Health visits enable specialists to consult with local emergency room physicians via video conferencing to help with specific patient emergencies such as stroke or trauma.
UCHealth has a robust Telestroke program to help hospital ED physicians across the state of Colorado and southern Wyoming treat stroke patients in record time, saving every precious brain cell possible. Virtual Health allows neurology specialists to provide expert guidance to community hospital providers. These providers can now keep, and treat, many stroke patients they may not have been able to before.
If a patient needs more advanced care, we transport that patient to one of the country’s best comprehensive stroke centers.
Visit with a physician by video using your computer, tablet or smartphone in the convenience of your home, office or location that is convenient for you. No drive time, no waiting room, no need to get out of your pajamas (if you don’t want to).
You’ll be seen and treated by a UCHealth medical professional just as if you were to visit seen face-to-face in one of our many health care facilities.
For the best experience, download the UCHealth app today.
Types of illnesses treated in a Virtual Visit:
- Allergic reaction.
- Cuts and scrapes.
- Pink eye.
- Sinus infection.
- Sore throat.
- Urinary tract infection.
Your virtual visit may be covered by insurance. However, if your health plan denies this charge you will receive a bill for this service.
Many health plans are adding virtual visits (telehealth) as a covered benefit. However, there are some healthcare plans that do not cover Virtual Visits such as Medicare.
For most insurance plans, we will attempt to bill your insurance- you may be responsible for your co-payment amount prior to seeing the doctor. However, if your health plan denies this charge you will receive a bill for this service. Also, please note that to bill medical insurance, a successful video connection must occur between the patient and the doctor.
