What is a Surgical Center?

Surgical Centers are designed exclusively for short-stay surgery. A hospital must be staffed and equipped to treat all types of medical problems, providing a much broader range of services.

HealthONE Surgery Centers

HealthONE Ambulatory Surgical Centers offer warm surroundings and an increased level of individual attention from our staff, minimizing the stress often associated with surgery. Our pleasant atmosphere and special pediatric facilities are particularly helpful in easing the fears of children who are scheduled for surgery. Our Centers specialize in short-stay surgery and our staff specializes in short-stay care.

We're Not a Hospital, But...

Surgical centers are similar to hospitals in three respects:

  • Your surgeon is supported by a highly skilled team of registered nurses and medical technicians specially trained in surgical and recovery care.
  • Our surgical suites and sophisticated equipment are like those of a large hospital.
  • If scheduled, Board Certified Anesthesiologists will be involved in your care and will be visiting with you on admittance.

Our Leadership Staff
