How is the Surgical Center different from a hospital?
Because a hospital must be staffed and equipped to treat all types of medical problems, it provides a much broader range of services than your current needs require. Since the Surgical Center is designed exclusively for outpatient surgery, we are able to offer patients a convenient, comfortable and generally less costly alternative to the hospital.
The Center's warm surroundings and increased level of individual attention minimize the stress often associated with surgery. You will be released within hours of surgery to complete your recovery in the comfort of home. Our pleasant atmosphere and special attention are particularly helpful in easing the fears of children who are scheduled for surgery.
The Center is similar to a hospital in three respects:
- Your surgeon is supported by a highly skilled team of registered nurses and medical technicians specially trained in surgical and recovery care.
- Our surgical suites are equipped with sophisticated monitors and highly technical equipment and instrumentation.
- The standards of care required by Medicare and surgical governing bodies are strictly adhered to by our Center.
