Beginning September 13, 2021 SKCSC will begin COVID-19 testing of all surgical patients.

COVID -19 Patient Education for Pre-Surgical Patients

South Kansas City Surgicenter is committed to the safety of our patients and our providers.
The COVID-19 testing must be completed within 48-72 hours of surgery. The Pre-Admission Testing nurse will give you the options for testing.
COVID-19 is a respiratory illness that can be present with OR without any symptoms. Because the virus can be present without symptoms, patients need to be tested prior to their procedure.


Visitor Policy:

No visitors except for pediatric patients or those without decision making capabilities.
Your caregiver will be contacted by your surgeon by phone at the end of the surgery. Please leave current contact information with the center. The nurse will also provide your caregiver with discharge instructions at the time you leave the center.

Dedicated to superior ambulatory surgical success.
