Pre-Admission Testing is offered by appointment Monday Friday, 7:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, 8:00 a.m. 3:00 p.m. Walk-ins are welcome, however, due to unpredictable wait times appointments are preferred.
Surgical patients should receive a call from the Admission Diagnostic Center within 24 hours of obtaining a surgery date for an appointment, however, if a patient has not been contacted, please call (757) 736-1930 to schedule an appointment.
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. If you need testing at the hospital, your representative can schedule a convenient time for you as early as one month prior to surgery.
If your pre-admission testing is not performed at a Sentara facility, or if your physician's office performs these tests, the results should be faxed to the Admission Diagnostic Center at (757) 736-2401 or (757) 736-2402 no later than 72 hours prior to surgery.
Please park in the Outpatient Area, enter the hospital through the James River Entrance, and register at the Outpatient Registration Desk.
