Our programs and facilities are designed to make your surgical experience a positive one and include:
- Preadmission Program. Baptist Health Corbin's preadmission program allows patients to preregister over the telephone or by mail. With this program, patients simply verify the information upon arrival and are escorted directly to surgery. In addition, all patients are offered financial counseling for non-covered expenses.
- Pre-surgery Work-up. Your surgeon will order a series of routine tests that must be done prior to surgery. The tests may include lab work, chest X-ray, EKG or urinalysis.
- Patient Education. When you come in to Baptist Health Corbin for pre-surgical testing, a registered nurse will teach you what to expect when coming in for surgery. Your physician will provide specific information about the type of surgery you are having and your recovery.
- Family Waiting Room. For the convenience of your family, Baptist Health Corbin has a family waiting room for surgical patients on the ground floor. Pay phones and restrooms are available and coffee is provided. Other beverages and snacks can be purchased in the Crystal Garden Dining Room.
- Conference Room. Patient confidentiality is a key concern at Baptist Health Corbin. We provide a private conference room so family members can speak with the physician confidentially.
