The St. Tammany Parish Hospital pre-operative care unit is designed with patient satisfaction in mind. Located on Hwy 1085 in the Paul D. Cordes Outpatient Pavilion, “Pre-op” is easily accessible to our patients coming in for pre-operative testing.

Designated parking spaces conveniently located near the covered entrance of the Outpatient Pavilion help speed along your pre-op visit. The STPH Pre-op unit offers the following services to our patients:

  • Lab testing
  • EKG
  • X-ray
  • Nurse interview and patient teaching

Some of the things the nurse will go over with you during an interview are procedures you should take in preparation for surgery, such as not eating or drinking after midnight the night before surgery, which medications to take the morning of, and other issues, such as what to bring and what to leave home on your surgery day.
