One-Day or Outpatient Surgery

When you are scheduled for same-day surgery, you will be prepared for surgery in the ambulatory/outpatient surgery department on the second floor and then transported to the main operating room on the first floor. After surgery, you will be kept for an hour or more in the recovery room before being taken to your room on the floor. The type of surgery performed will determine your length of stay in the hospital.
