SurgiCare Outpatient Surgery

Using today's surgical techniques, it's possible for patients to have a wide variety of surgical procedures performed in a hospital operating room setting and then return home on the same day.

Outpatient surgery offers two major advantages to patients:

  • Comfort: Patients can recuperate in the comfort and privacy of their own home, which most find to be
    more comfortable and pleasant.
  • Cost: Because there is no hospitalization involved, the cost of outpatient
    surgery is lower than traditional surgery involving a hospital stay.

Located on the second floor of Medical Tower I, Surgicare provides a separate waiting area for family members, and 21 recovery rooms where family members can be with patients after their surgery prior to leaving the hospital.

Advantages of Outpatient Surgery at a Major Medical Center

Patients coming to Phoebe's Surgicare center for outpatient surgery are prepped for surgery and receive education and instruction in the Surgicare center. However, the surgery procedures are performed in the same operating rooms - with the same experienced team - as inpatient surgery at Phoebe.

Phoebe's operating rooms and O.R. center are the most technologically advanced in the region and home to some of the most talented and skilled doctors, nurses and other medical professionals in the Southeast. And this state-of-the-art surgery center is where outpatient surgery at Phoebe is performed. Should the need arise, the most advanced medical technology and talent in the region are always available at a moment's notice.
