Surgical Services

Welcome to Oswego Hospital’s state-of-the-art Surgery Center. Our highly trained physicians perform ambulatory, minimally invasive and general specialty surgeries in a new seven-suite surgery center that features the latest in technology.

Pre-Admission Testing
Prior to surgery, patients meet with the pre-admission testing coordinator for an initial nursing assessment that includes preoperative instruction and completion of lab and other testing as ordered by the physician. This is also an opportunity for our patients to ask questions about their surgery. This process is initiated when the procedure is scheduled with the Surgery Center. The pre-admission coordinator may be contacted at (315) 349-5703.

Registration The Day of Surgery
To register, patients should use the surgery center entrance on West Sixth Street. Once inside, take the elevator or stairs to the second floor. For covered entrance and wheelchair assistance, please use our main entrance.
Registration is easy and when the process is completed, patients will be directed to the waiting area, where a nurse will call them to prepare for surgery.  As you might expect, a caring and professional medical team will monitor each patient throughout their entire surgery experience. 
On the day of surgery, patients need to bring a list of their current medications with them when they register.

A large waiting area is available for the comfort of the family member or person who is accompanying you on the day of your surgery.

  • Infants and children should not accompany
    family to surgery. Please make arrangements
    for their care before coming to the hospital. 
    Visitors are welcome to use the hospital cafeteria
    or snack bar, both are located on the hospital’s
    main floor.
