The pre-admission office is open 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.. Call (775) 423-3151. about any special needs or concerns, including referrals or services that the patient may need to have arranged prior to admission.

Most insurance companies require prior authorization for procedures. Please verify with the physician's office that the surgery is authorized.
Patients may need to make arrangements for pre-admission tests (i.e.., lab work, chest X-ray, EKG) to be done at an outside facility. These tests should be completed at least two days prior to the day of surgery. If the tests are done through the patient’s medical or primary care physician, the patient may be asked to bring the results with them on the day of admission. Many of these tests require pre-op authorization.
