There was a time when having surgery meant a lengthy hospital stay. Today, the board-certified surgeons at Evangelical routinely perform an increasing number of procedures as One-Day Surgery. It’s our goal to provide the expert surgical care you need and safely return you to your regularly scheduled life as soon as possible.

Pre-Surgical Testing

Prior to your One-Day Surgery, you’ll need to have some tests through our Pre-Admission Care department. Your doctor will order all of the tests you’ll need. They may include:

  • Lab work
  • Chest X-rays
  • An EKG
  • Other testing

Your surgeon’s office will work with you to schedule your Pre-Admission Care appointment. Please plan to spend about 2 hours at the Hospital for that appointment.
