ambulatory surgical unit
The Same Day Surgery Unit
Main Hospital, 3rd Floor
Monday - Friday: 6:30 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.
The friendly, professional staff of the Ambulatory Surgical Unit is available to meet the needs of patients and their fa.m.ilies. Patients are our top priority. Delivering professional, focused, compassionate care, staff members strive to address the concerns of patients, their families and to provide a positive surgical experience.
The patients that utilize the area are many and varied; the unifying factor is that the majority of the patients will be discharged home following a brief recovery period.
General anesthesia, conscious sedation, regional blocks, and local anesthetics are available for the patients. The type of anesthesia is based on the procedure being done and the patient’s health status. General surgery, orthopedics, ophthalmology, gynecology, endoscopy, vascular procedures, and pain management are some of the services that are available through the unit.
The Same Day Surgery Unit sees each patient as an individual with needs and concerns specific to their own situation. No two are alike. No two patients face the same surgical challenges. It is the task of the staff to work with each patient, deliver the best care and return the patient to their loved ones for healing.
