Before Your Operation

Pre-operative evaluation, teaching and testing is necessary before your operation. Your doctor may arrange to have this done in the Surgical Preparation Center (SPC) located on the fourth floor of the St. Joseph Mercy Reichert Health Center, Suite 4005. You will meet with a nurse to help you prepare for your hospital stay and answer any questions. The nurse will review your health history and coordinate your testing. These tests must be done in advance of your operation so your doctor may review them. A physical exam, if requested by your doctor, may also be performed during your visit. Bring this book to your pre-operative visit. Testing and registration may be done as early as 30 days before your operation. Registration information, including medical insurance information, will be obtained by telephone before your visit. If a Patient Financial Services representative is unable to reach you by phone, this will be done at the time of your pre-operative visit. A hospital representative will contact your insurance before your admission to verify benefits and identify any costs you may have to pay.

If you have any questions about your hospital bill, please call Patient Financial Services at 734-712-3700 or 800-676-0437 (in Michigan only). The TDD number is 734-827-9336.
