Same Day Surgery Center

Advancing surgical procedures mean most patients come to the hospital in the morning, surgery is done and, after an adequate recovery time, they go homeā€”all in the same day.

We have a Same Day Surgery Center designed to get patients into and out of surgery comfortably and efficiently. When you arrive, you'll be greeted by a receptionist and given access to a personal locker to store clothes and personal items. Toys and games are available to occupy children, and a teddy bear is given to each child to keep them company. CD players with headphones are also available.

Friends or family members accompanying patients can be given a pager so that they can leave the Same Day Surgery Center waiting room and go to other areas of the clinic and hospital, like the Caribou Coffee Bar and the cafeteria, and be contacted immediately if necessary. When patients are in the Same Day Surgery Center, they move seamlessly from pre-operative to the operating room to post-op via mobile high-tech surgical chairs that can be adjusted by the patient.

Following the surgical procedure, patients are attended to by a nurse, receiving support and timely care. Each patient is carefully monitored and evaluated before going home.
