Surgery patients

If you have questions about your child's scheduled surgery or the admission process, please call 314-432-3600.

Please notify us if, within three weeks of your surgery admission date, your child experiences symptoms of infectious illness including fever, cough, rash, vomiting, diarrhea or any suspected/known exposure to chicken pox, measles or any other contagious disease/condition.

Surgery pre-admission visit

You can expect a phone call from your care manager one to four weeks prior to your surgery admission date. If for some reason you find it necessary to cancel this admission, please let the outpatient department know as soon as possible. A pre-admission appointment will be scheduled before your admission date.


We will try our best to make your child’s stay with us as easy as possible. Please plan to arrive at the time designated on your admission notice. During this visit you will meet with the admission nurse and nurse practitioner who will review your child’s health history. Although the health history review may seem repetitive, your answers help us give your child the best care possible.

We realize your presence during your child’s stay at the hospital is very reassuring, so we encourage one parent/guardian to stay at the bedside.
