Whether you're at Newport Hospital for a planned surgery or your visit is unexpected, we will do everything possible to make you comfortable.
Please call 401-845-1458 or 845-1459 between 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, with any questions you may have.
After 4:00 p.m., please call 401-845-1445 or 401-846-6400.
From the parking lot on Powel Avenue, cross the street and use the main hospital entrance. Go to the right, through the Hill Courtyard, and continue to the elevators. Take the elevator to the second floor and go left to the reception desk.
Please bring a list of medications with you to your pre-admission testing appointment. When you come in for your pre-admission testing, please go to the patient registration office located on the first floor of the Alletta Morris Building. When you have registered there, please come to the pre-admission testing department on the second floor of the Alletta Morris Building.
If you are not scheduled for pre-admission testing please call 401-845-1458 or 845-1459 on the business day before your surgery between 1:00 and 3:00 p.m. (For example, if your surgery is scheduled for Monday, please call us on Friday.) We will then give you the necessary information about your arrival time, procedures and medications.
Please follow these instructions exactly unless your doctor specifically instructs you to do otherwise.
Please contact your doctor if you develop a rash, fever or cold so he or she can determine whether it is best to postpone your surgery.
Before coming in for surgery, please follow these guidelines:
When you are at the hospital you will be asked to remove your dentures, partial plates, contact lenses and any prostheses before surgery.
All minors must be accompanied to the hospital by a parent or guardian, who must remain in the ambulatory surgery area during the child's surgery.
