You may need to have routine pre-admission tests before surgery to advise your physician of your general state of health. Tests may include lab work, X-rays, or an EKG a couple of weeks prior to your surgery. If you need testing at the hospital, patients are seen on a walk-in basis only. Patients who are registering at the hospital may need to bring cash and/or credit cards for insurance co-payments.

Central Testing is offered Monday Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Testing hours for surgical patients needing pre-surgical interviews by the Anesthesia Intake Nurse are Monday Friday (no weekends), 7:30 a.m. 5:00 p.m.

If your pre-admission testing is not performed at a Sentara facility, or if your physician's office performs these tests, the results must be sent in writing to the hospital (either by mail or fax) no later than 24 hours before your surgery.

Please park in front of the Patient Entrance and register at the Patient Service Center.
