    Pre-registration:
    Once your doctor schedules an appointment for your endoscopy at Homestead Hospital, you should receive a call from a Pre-testing Nurse several days  before your procedure to gather your medical history and review your medications; a pre-procedure appointment may be scheduled. If you have not received a call the day before your procedure, call 786-243-8503 or 786-243-8528, Monday through Friday.

    Guests:
    At Homestead Hospital, our top priority is the safety of our patients. For this reason, we ask that you bring along a companion, a family member, or a friend to wait while you have your procedure so that they can take you home afterward. If you do not bring a guest, please arrange to have someone pick you up following the procedure for a ride home. For your safety, you will not be permitted to leave the hospital alone after receiving medication. If you should have any questions or concerns regarding this policy, please discuss them with a member of our staff.

    Resources for Hospital Data

    Florida's Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) makes available data on hospital prices and performance on their Internet website at FloridaHealthFinder.gov and Pricing.FloridaHealthFinder.gov . The data on hospital prices and performance are based on a compilation of charges for the average patient. A patient's bill may vary from the average shown, depending upon the severity of illness and individual care needs.​

You should contact the health care providers who may render services to you for a list of the insurance plans with which they participate. You may also request from the facility and other health care providers a personalized estimate of charges.
