Pre-admission

Pre-admission testing is conducted prior to a surgical procedure at PRMC. It may include blood work, an EKG, chest X-ray, a physical assessment and history. Education, instruction and an uncomplicated recovery are our goals and we try to provide that by giving continuity of care to patients before and after surgery.
