Service Animals: In public areas of all facilities we welcome guide dogs, signal dogs and other animals trained to perform tasks for a person with a disability. Patients who are admitted cannot bring animals into certain areas, such as the operating or procedure rooms.

Before you come to UH Beachwood Medical Center for a surgery, your doctor may order pre-admission testing (PAT). These tests help our team ensure your safety and comfort during surgery, as well as during recovery. We'll also ask you questions about your medical history and medications. Please bring your photo ID and current insurance card to your PAT visit. To schedule your pre-admission testing, call 216-545-4871.
Appointments are available Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. – 2:15 p.m.
If at any time you have questions or concerns about any aspect of your stay with us, please bring them to the attention of your nurse or any team member. If you believe that your nurse or the team member has not fully addressed your questions or concerns to your satisfaction, please ask to speak to the department manager or administrative coordinator.
