Once your doctor refers you for surgery or a procedure at Medical Center of the Rockies or Poudre Valley Hospital, your doctor's office typically will schedule a pre-admission appointment for you. This appointment is required before surgery.
Call 970-624-1500 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 currently prescribed medications can be taken before the 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.
