Surgical Care Services
Reassuring A Healthy Recovery
From preadmission through recovery, our surgical care services team has the experience and dedication to make your stay at West Valley Medical Center as pleasant and reassuring as possible. Our staff is composed of highly skilled hospital personnel, physicians and their assistants. They work closely with the doctors’ offices and our patients to ensure that our patients are prepared for their surgical procedures.
Seeing a preadmission nurse is one way our patients are prepared for surgery. This nursing team member takes a medical and surgical history, does any preoperative testing ordered by the surgeon, provides the patient with information about the admission and discharge process, and begins the patient record. The patient has an opportunity to ask questions about the hospital process and the treatment to be provided.
