Surgery That Fits Into Your Life

With the advent of laparoscopic and other minimally-invasive surgical techniques, patients can recover quickly and be home sooner. That is why we provide outpatient surgery centers at both hospitals and our Pooler Campus for your convenience.

Not only is it easy for patients to get in and out but each location has comfortable areas for loved ones to wait.  

Most patients are able to go home the same day. Patients who had surgery at St. Joseph’s Hospital or Candler Hospital and need additional observation after the procedure can stay in specialized 23-hour units. If complications arise during the procedure, the patient is already in a full-service hospital environment that can provide top level and critical care.
