Our nurses are highly trained in a variety of specialty areas in order to meet the wide variety of patient care needs.
Patients having colonoscopies, endoscopies, laparoscopic procedures, minor orthopedic surgeries and other minor surgeries may receive same-day surgical care. Patients typically go home later in the day of surgery or may stay up to 24 hours.
