    Sutter Davis Hospital

    Thank you for choosing Sutter Davis Hospital for your upcoming surgical procedure.

    The steps below will help you pre-register and prepare for your surgery.

    Step 1 » Step 2 » Step 3 » Step 4 » Privacy & Financial Assistance

    Step 1 - Completion of the Pre-Admission Form |  back to top

    You can complete your registration process online by clicking here. Completing the form should take you 10-15 minutes. You will need your insurance information.

    Step 2 - Telephone Conference with a Nurse |  back to top

    After we receive your online registration form, a nurse will contact you to assess your health status and to complete your electronic chart for surgery. This interview will take approximately 30 minutes of your time. The nurse will call you at the number you provided on the online registration form (above), sometime during the two-week period prior to your surgery. The pre-op nurse will also provide you with your preoperative surgery instructions.

    PLEASE NOTE: If you have not received a call from us within three days of your scheduled surgery, please call:

    (530) 750-5223
    Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Excluding holidays)

    You may call us for any other questions you may have about the online registration process.

    Step 3 - Arriving for Your Procedure |  back to top

    Please plan to arrive in advance of your scheduled surgery time. The nurse will inform you of your surgery date and time to arrive on that surgery date. Exception to this is for all general surgery and endoscopy patients. These patients MUST call the physician office to confirm the surgery date and what time to arrive.

    See our Preparing for Surgery and Day of Surgery pages for more information.

    To help you find your surgery location, please see our Maps and Directions page.

    Step 4 - Returning Home |  back to top

    You will receive instructions for your post-surgery home care before you leave the hospital. Be sure to follow these instructions, and consult with your physician if you have questions.
