Same Day Services

Nobody likes to stay in a hospital longer than necessary. The goal of our Saint Mary’s Care in Same Day Services is to make it possible for you to recover from minor procedures in the comfort of your home. After all, isn’t that where you’d rather be?

Some surgical needs do not require overnight stays. The focus of Saint Mary’s Care is not only providing convenience and, in some cases, substantial cost savings, but also earning your trust in our ability to make both surgery and recovery as comfortable as possible.

All-Private All The Time

Your privacy is of the utmost importance. Your comfort is of the utmost importance. Upon arriving for your surgical procedure at Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center you will find yourself escorted to a private room. There you can prepare for your procedure in comfort and privacy, assisted with the warm, friendly and personal touch of a caring, compassionate staff member. We respect your privacy and will try to alleviate any fears you might have by walking you through every step of the procedure before your surgery. This setting allows our caring and professional staff to be more attentive to your personal needs.

Comprehensive Surgical Specialties

Our highly skilled team of healthcare professionals are dedicated to your health. From the surgeon to the anesthesiologist, from the nurses to the surgical technicians, they utilize caring hands and hearts, and the full complement of technology a full service hospital can offer.

Skilled Surgical Nursing Care

We believe when the patient knows what to expect, he or she will feel less apprehensive. It is important to take the time to keep you well informed. And our skilled professionals will do just that. They are always available to answer any questions you or your family may have. They are part of a complete surgical support system Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center has carefully assembled for your care.

Expedited Registration and Discharge

It is important to us that you and your family feel comfortable and at ease. Pre-registration for your procedure will take place prior to your arrival at Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center. That allows you to arrive knowing that less paperwork, and less time will be required for your registration.

Canceling Surgery

Your surgery may have to be canceled or rescheduled if you eat or drink anything beforehand, or if you have a change in your physical condition, such as a cold, fever, persistent cough or rash. If these or other unforeseen reasons cause you to cancel surgery, please contact Same Day Services and your physician as soon as possible.

24-hr. M.D. Anesthesiology Coverage

You can feel secure knowing that an Anesthesiologist is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Working with your surgeon, you have the support of trained medical professionals during your procedure.

Personal Climate Control Gowns

We’ve got you covered! Personal Climate Control Gowns are provided to our surgical patients to ensure your comfort. Personal attention is an important part of our care.

Warm Blanket Service

The touch and feel of a warm blanket snuggly wrapped around you by caring, attentive professionals. We will do everything possible to make your visit as comfortable as possible.

Reserved Parking

At Saint Mary’s we want your entire experience to be positive. By offering our surgical patients a reserved parking area, we alleviate the worry of finding a parking place, or knowing where to park.

Post-Procedure Follow-up

Trained professionals will call you to check on you after your surgical procedure. They’ll ask you if you’ve had any prescriptions filled, or are having any difficulties since your discharge. Our caring and compassionate staff members want you to know that you may have been discharged, but your follow up care is just as important. Let our caring hands reach out to you!

Surgery Instructions for Children

Whether our patient is a child, teen, adult or a senior, our guidelines apply to all. Babies and young children may wear pajamas to the hospital and bring their favorite toy or blanket, if desired. It is not safe for anyone to care for a child who has had surgery and drive a car at the same time. Please bring another adult to assist you. Be prepared to stay at the hospital until your child is discharged.

Full-Service Hospital Support

Feelings of anxiety prior to any visit to the hospital may be present. But your visit is backed by the support of an entire highly-trained hospital staff. The availability of these resources can alleviate any fears you may experience. Skill and proficiency combined with welcoming hospitality comprise what we call Saint Mary’s Care. Welcome to The Surgery Center at Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center.
