What to Expect in the Days Before Surgery

The registration department will call you a few days before your child’s surgery date to go over general information with you and verify name, address insurance information, and parent/guardian details.

One of the nurses from the pediatric surgical area will also call to give you information, such as:

  •   Arrival times


  •   Eating and drinking instructions


  •   Driving and parking directions.


If you plan to take a pre-operative tour of Baystate Children’s Hospital, sign up with Baystate Health Link at 413-794-2255 or toll-free at 1-800-377-HEALTH outside the Springfield calling area.
