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 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 need additional observation after the procedure can stay in SJ/C 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. 

Our outpatient surgery departments handle nearly every type of surgery.

Patient Status Update Boards

At St. Joseph’s/ Candler, we understand how important ongoing communication can be when your loved one is undergoing any type of surgical procedure, which is why we have in place a system to keep you informed of patient status updates.

The status update board is color coded to keep you informed of where your loved one is at all steps of the surgical process from the time the patient enters the hospital until they are ready to go home or assigned to a room for any inpatient stays.

How It Works

As you enter the hospital, the family member or other designated person will be assigned a confidential code that will display on the board to let you know where your loved one is at all times. 

If your loved one is to stay overnight, the volunteer in the waiting area will be able to tell you what room number they have been assigned.
