What to expect

Our goal is to provide comprehensive, individualized care to patients and their families who choose Unity for their surgery. That’s why we want to provide information to help you understand what to expect before, during and after surgery at Unity Physicians Hospital.

Patient Check-in

Unity Physicians Hospital offers a convenient check-in desk just steps from our entrance. Whether checking in for diagnostic imaging, pre-admission screenings or surgery, our staff will guide you through the process.

Check-in services are from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Eastern time), unless otherwise arranged.

Pre-admission Screening for Surgery

If your doctor has scheduled surgery for you, you will receive a call from a surgical pre-admission nurse within a week of your surgery date. The nurse will collect medical and contact information needed to register you with the hospital.

Your nurse will explain medical tests you need and dietary restrictions to follow prior to surgery.

Inpatient Hospital Services

You may need to stay in our hospital for more than 23 hours as you recover from surgery. Our inpatient services are designed to keep you as comfortable as possible during your stay.

We believe healing and recovery come faster with proper nutrition. That’s why we provide a first-class dining experience for patients who are admitted to the hospital after surgery.

Visiting Hours

Our visiting hours vary based on current health conditions in our community. Please contact us for information about when your loved ones may visit you during your stay at the hospital.
