Visitors may accompany you to the Pre-Op Holding Area located on the ground floor of the Heart and Vascular Hospital once you are admitted. Pagers are available to be checked out by your family members. The pager is used to notify your family members of any updates during surgery and when the surgery is finished. The 4th floor of the Heart and Vascular Hospital is where you will go after surgery and your visitors/family members are welcome to wait on that floor.
You will be taken to the 4th floor directly from surgery. Your family members will be able to see you as soon as the nurse has you settled in - usually in about one hour after the surgery is completed.
