What We Do

The Pre-Admit Clinic plays a key role in preparing you for your surgery. Elective surgical procedures are scheduled through the hospital’s Operating Room Booking Office, which works closely with the Pre-Admit Clinic to make your experience as smooth as possible. 
Before your surgery, the Pre-Admit Clinic will call you to schedule an appointment to discuss your preparations. The nurse will gather your surgical and medical history, advise you on what medications to take or avoid before surgery, schedule necessary X-rays or lab tests, and review what you can expect on the day of your surgery. 
The Pre-Admit Clinic will ask you to bring the following items to your appointment: 

  • A list of all past surgeries and relevant medical history 
  • All medications in their original containers 
  • Your Ontario Health Card 

If you arrive late, miss your appointment, or do not bring the necessary information, it will be rescheduled, and this may also cause the surgery date to be rescheduled. 

You must call 759-3623 (Day Surgery) between 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. on the day before your surgery to advise you of the time of your procedure, when you should arrive at SAH, and where you should report.
