​Arrival

Go to the Outpatient Surgery Visitor’s Lounge​, and check in with the receptionist. You will receive an ID bracelet to wear until you go home.

Most surgical patients will begin and end their surgical experience in the Outpatient Surgery Center. All rooms are private and include a television.

Here you will be asked to change into a hospital gown. Personal belongings will be locked in a locker until you go home. An intravenous (IV) line may be started in an arm or hand vein before surgery by a registered nurse.

Surgery times are approximate and may be earlier or later depending on the entire surgery schedule.
