UPDATED APRIL 26, 2021:
In an effort to protect you, your family, our healthcare workers and the community, Northside Hospital has required patients scheduled for surgery or other procedures to have a negative COVID-19 test prior to the procedure. Based on the effectiveness and availability of the COVID-19 vaccines, for patients scheduled for a procedure on or after May 3, 2021, Northside will waive the test requirement for patients who have received the full series of the COVID-19 vaccine and at least 14 days has elapsed since the last dose of the vaccine (defined as fully vaccinated).
If you are not fully vaccinated, you will be required to have a screening test for COVID-19 three business days or 72 hours before your scheduled surgery. It is important that you come for your screening test on the designated day. This will ensure that your results are back in time for your procedure. Screening will be performed at one of our drive-thru testing sites Monday – Friday: 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. You do not need an appointment for testing. Drive-thru testing sites are located close to each of our hospital facilities. Please go to the testing site designated for the facility where your surgery will take place.

Your time is important, so our team at Northside Hospital provides convenient options for your pre-surgery planning. We offer your pre-surgical assessment over the phone, allowing you to complete your health history and receive essential pre-surgical
guidance at your convenience from your home or office.
Part of our pre-surgery planning also includes checking your overall health, making sure you are ready for surgery and optimal recovery. If any pre-surgical testing is required to verify your overall wellness, such as EKG heart monitoring, blood work
or an anesthesiologist consult, we’ll help schedule these tests or appointments at one of our convenient locations.
At Northside Hospital, our job is to not only reassure you about the surgery plan but keep your family informed during your procedure. Our Surgical Pager System keeps everyone in the loop, so while you are in surgery, pagers are given to family members to keep them updated on your progress and your discharge status.
We’ll make sure you have all the information you need on your post-surgery care and are always available for any questions throughout your recovery. Our goal is your goal – take expert care of your surgical needs and help you through recovery and on to improved wellness – as soon as possible.
