The location where you'll receive care depends on your needs.
Like all CMH providers, our surgeons and nurses take the time to get to know you before your procedure. We work to understand your concerns and focus on your well-being.
Your health care provider will discuss the procedure with you and take the time to answer your questions. They'll also give you pre-op instructions. After you schedule surgery, our pre-admission testing nurse will work with you to complete any needed tests, such as lab work or x-rays.
After surgery, the surgical nurses will provide recovery instructions. Our fact sheet about preventing surgical site infections will come in handy too. You'll work with your health care provider to manage prescriptions, get test results and more.
If you have questions or concerns about your procedure, you can reach the pre-admission testing nurse at 503.338.7516. They are here to help.
We recommend that you bring your personal medication record when you meet with your provider or arrive for any procedures.
