Pre-Admission Testing at St. Dominic Hospital

Pre-admission testing is an important part of the care that you will receive if you are scheduled to have surgery at St. Dominic Hospital.
The pre-admission process is designed to help reduce anxiety that you might be experiencing and to ensure that everything goes smoothly on the day of your procedure.

Depending on the type of procedure you are having, your physician may require advanced testing such as EKG, chest x-rays, and lab work. The first step in the pre-admission process is to schedule an appointment. Your physician’s office may schedule this on your behalf or you may call us directly at 601-200-6737. Our hours of operation are Monday through Friday 8 am–5:00 pm. Please make your appointment as soon as possible after your surgery date is established.

Please allow up to two hours to complete the pre-admission testing.

During your pre-admission appointment, we encourage you to ask our staff any questions that you might have regarding your upcoming procedure. The following link contains a pre-operative medical history questionnaire. Please feel free to print, fill out, and bring it with you to your pre-admission appointment in order to expedite your pre-admission process.

When you arrive for your pre-admission appointment, you will check in at admissions located at the entrance of the north medical mall lobby. There you will meet with an admission representative. After completing necessary forms, you will then meet with one of our pre-admission nurses to review your medical history and complete any necessary tests.
