Today's technologies enable physician to perform many procedures on an outpatient basis. Same Day Services provides both medical and surgical services.

If your physician has scheduled you for a same-day service, you will receive a folder with information. This information covers:
  • Registration
  • Financial arrangements
  • Preparing for your procedure
  • Preparing for your comfort, convenience and safety
  • Information about the procedure you are having
  • Your schedule for the day
  • A checklist of things to bring
  • Preparing for going home
If your procedure is scheduled in advance, you may be contacted by our team of nurses who help you prepare for your stay with us. You'll have the opportunity to ask questions.


Family members are welcome to visit you before and after your procedure. They will be directed to a waiting room where hospital volunteers will keep them informed of your progress during your procedure.

If it is necessary for children to be at the hospital, they must be accompanied by an adult and closely supervised at all times.
