For a complete rundown of what to expect before, during, and after your hospital stay, visit PREPARING FOR SURGERY.
Please review your doctor’s instructions before you come to the hospital for your surgery. The instructions will tell you to arrive at a specific surgery center at Mon General Hospital. Your pre-admission call will reinforce this information. If you have questions, please call in advance: 304-598-1446.
For directions to your specific surgical center, as well as parking information, please click below:
The following items/documents are important to bring with you:
- Physician order
- Insurance Cards
- Photo Identification
- Copays and Deductibles
- Living Will/Medical Power of Attorney (also known as an “Advance Directive”) if it is not already on file.
Medicare/Medicaid Card (if applicable)
- List of medications
Even if you stay in the hospital overnight, you may NOT be considered an “inpatient.” Make sure you understand if you are a hospital inpatient or outpatient.
When you arrive at your specific surgical center, please check in at the front desk. There will be a lobby with magazines and other amenities to provide a comfortable wait.
You will be taken to a private room where the registration process will begin. Registration staff will gather information such as your address, birth date, telephone number, Social Security number, insurance, etc. You will also be issued an ID bracelet. One family member/friend/caregiver is permitted to be with you during the registration process.
We strive for patient privacy. Each patient has the option to have their name listed in the hospital information directory. If you choose not
to list your name, we will turn away flowers, visitors who don’t know your room number and phone calls (including family members.)
