UPDATED JULY 1, 2022:
Effective July 1, 2022, Northside Hospital Surgical Services departments will move to a screening-based strategy for COVID-19 symptoms for patients undergoing surgical procedures. This means that you will be assessed for current symptoms of COVID-19, assessed for exposure to someone with COVID-19, and assessed for a history of COVID-19 within the past 90 days.
If you experience symptoms of COVID-19 or find out that you were exposed to someone with COVID-19 within seven days before your surgery, call the COVID-19 Symptom Hotline at 404-497-8555 .
You will be prompted to select the number for the facility where your surgery is scheduled. Once you select your facility, you will be routed to a nurse in our Pre-Surgery Testing departments, who will evaluate your symptoms or exposure, schedule you for a COVID-19 test, and inform your surgeon.
If you get a voice mailbox when you call, please leave a detailed message, including your name, date of birth, location of surgery, and date of surgery, and a nurse will call you back either the same day or the following day.
Prompts on the Symptom Hotline will fall under the five Hospital Campuses. If you are having a procedure at one of our outpatient surgery locations, please review the list below to determine which Hospital Campus you should select:
