Outpatient services are provided for patients who need routine tests such as lab work or imaging services, or for procedures that do not require an overnight stay in the hospital such as a minor surgery that does not require constant monitoring.
Due to recent changes in the healthcare system and advances in the way that some surgeries are performed, many surgeries are now considered as outpatient, allowing patients to recover in the comfort of their own homes.
If you are visiting us for an outpatient procedure such as a day surgery, blood draw, or an imaging procedure such as a bone density scan, CT scan, or x-ray, we can pre-admit you before the scheduled day and time of your procedure.
We hope by doing this we will reduce your stress on the day you have the procedure and, in some instances such as a repeated blood draw, will only need to be done once. By pre-admitting you, we can also prevent any issues that may arise such as an insurance issue or scheduling conflict.
Simply enter our main entrance and let our staff know at the welcome desk that you need to be registered for an outpatient procedure.
If you are visiting us for an outpatient surgery, your doctor or our staff may direct you to enter and/or exit from our outpatient surgery exit. This location is directly across from the Library located on Bliss.
Our staff will direct you what to do if you are requested to enter or exit here.
