Most inpatients and some day surgery patients are referred to our Pre-operative (Pre-op) Assessment Clinic at the General site. The clinic visit is scheduled a week or so before surgery and allows patients to complete paperwork, blood tests, anesthesia and internal medicine consults.
As a result, patients are able to sleep in the comfort of their home the night before their surgery, rather than having to be admitted to hospital the day before for tests.
Patients coming in for surgery register and prepare themselves in our surgical day care area. All the surgical units are committed to offering patients and their families the highest quality and safest care. We want your experience at North York General to be outstanding.
