Your physician has determined that surgery is needed to restore optimum health and that the procedure is appropriate for 900 North Michigan Surgical Center. Your physician will schedule a convenient date and time for your surgery.
All other test results performed elsewhere should be forwarded to 900 North Michigan Surgical Center five days prior to surgery by mail or fax 312.440.5151 or 312.440.5156.
Once your doctor has scheduled your procedure, our nurse will call you to obtain your medical history, discuss the scheduled procedure, describe the admitting process, and give specific instructions for the day of surgery. This is also a good time for you to ask questions and discuss any concerns you might have.
We make every effort to contact you prior to surgery; however, if our nurse is unable to reach you on the day before surgery, call the Center at 312.440.5150 extension 5310 or 5311 and confirm your reservation with the Center. In addition to any instructions given to you by your doctor, the following items must be noted:
Please refer to the location page for specific instructions regarding the location of the surgery center and parking instructions. You should plan on arriving at the Center at least 1 to 1.5 hours before the scheduled time of your surgery or according to instructions given by your physician. Please be certain to bring a photo ID and a copy of all of your insurance cards with you on the day of surgery. Once you arrive at 900 North Michigan Avenue, please proceed to the parking structure that adjoins the building, accessible on Walton Street or Rush Street. The south elevators, along Delaware Place will take you directly to the 15th Floor. Please proceed to our reception desk.
Following surgery, our team of nurses will monitor you closely throughout the recovery phase. Your family members and caregivers may join you in the recovery area once you are ready for visitors.
