"Patient Education Program (PEP)": Pre-surgery Education for Patients and Families
Scheduled for surgery? Attend a free "PEP" class!
Our weekly “PEP” programs for children and adults are taught by members of the surgical and hospital staff, including experienced surgical nurses, rehabilitation specialists and other key members of the team. Together, they help prepare patients for surgery by explaining what to expect before, during and after a surgical procedure.
Topics include all aspects of surgery, including what to expect in the operating and recovery rooms and pain management. Family members are welcome.
Classes for adults are held weekly from 4:30-5:30 p.m.
All classes are held in the Stoico/FIRSTFED Center for Breast Care, just inside our main entrance. Free valet parking is available at the main entrance.
Once your surgery is scheduled, call the PEP number below to register for a class or get more information:
