Pre-Registration/Surgical Assessment Services (SAS)
Covenant Children's Pre-Registration Center or "SAS" is designed
to make the day of surgery more convenient for patients and their families.
Any patient scheduled for an elective surgery at Covenant Children's
Hospital is encouraged to come to SAS, prior to surgery, to:
- Complete paperwork and consent forms
- Complete lab tests
- Receive imaging services and/or health assessments prior to surgery
A nurse at SAS will spend time with each patient to explain the upcoming
procedure, make sure the patient knows where to go on the day of surgery
and answer any questions.
You can schedule appointmetns with SAS or walk-in but please note that
walk-ins may have longer wait times. We highly encourage you to schedule
appointments in advance. If you want to save even more time, come to SAS with the
Health History Form already completed!

Your child's surgical care is important and our participation in Pediatric
NSQIP shows you we take quality seriously. We use NSQIP data to ensure
we're providing care on par with other major children's hospitals
across the US. You can rest assured that our surgical care is top notch
- and we care enough to benchmark it and drive continuous quality improvement
through real data.
The Pediatric National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) is
the premiere pediatric surgical quality improvement program in the nation.
We are the only hospital in Lubbock, and our region, that participates.
In fact we're 1 of only 9 hospitals in Texas that participate. We
provide surgical data, including 30-day outcomes data, on specific high-risk,
high-volume procedures drawn from six sub-specialty areas. NSQIP then
benchmarks this data and facilitates collaboration among participating
member hospitals in order to drive continuous quality improvement.
