Before Your Hospital Visit

Emory University Orthopaedic and Spine Hospital (EUOSH)There's a lot you can do to prepare for your surgical procedure. We recommend you pre-register, confirm your insurance, review accommodations and provide contact information for your family and friends. We also recommend you prepare for your recuperation after the procedure when you return home. This will give you a sense of direction and keep you focused on your recovery.


Pre-registering for your hospital visit saves you time. To pre-register, call 404-686-5270 or 1-800-640-9293 (Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 7 p.m.) no more than 30 days before your admission.

All patients will stay in a private suite with a sleep sofa for a guest. A limited number of patient and family suites are available for an additional fee. Each family suite includes a patient room and a sitting room with a sofa bed, entertainment/dining area and business center. Requests for a family suite can be made during pre-registration, however, they cannot be guaranteed.

Luxury private suite services with upgraded amenities are also available

What to Bring

When you come to the hospital, please bring:

  • Personal items, such as sleepwear and toiletries
  • A list of your medication(s) and your allergies
  • Insurance information
  • Copies of your advance directives, if you have them
  • Personal I.D. (drivers license)

Please leave valuables at home

Valuables such as jewelry or large amounts of cash. We regret that we will not be responsible for these items. You may need your checkbook and/or card at the time of admission, but please send them home afterwards with a family member or friend.

Will you need special communication services?

It is vital that you be able to communicate with your health care team. Please ask your nurse to arrange for an interpreter if English is not your primary language. For the hearing impaired, TDDs/TTYs, hearing aid compatible phones and signing services are available.

Guest Lodging

While each room is equipped with a pullout sleeper sofa chair, and there are a limited number of double suites to accommodate more than one guest, there may still be a need for guests to stay in a nearby hotel. It is recommended to make these accommodations in advance if possible. The Guest Services desk in the lobby can also help make arrangements as well as provide a list of area restaurants and transportation options.
