Surgical Services / Same Day Surgery

Surgical Services at Bartlett Regional Hospital includes the Operating Room, Central Processing, Post Anesthesia Care Unit, Anesthesia Services, Preadmission Testing, and Same Day Surgery.

All patients who enter Bartlett Regional Hospital for surgery as inpatient or outpatient are admitted through the Same Day Surgery Unit.  While the majority of patients are discharged on the same day, some may require overnight stay on an inpatient unit.

Patients are typically seen 1-3 days in advance of their scheduled surgery, at which time they are evaluated by an R.N.  The preoperative evaluation may include preoperative labs to be drawn and postoperative care instructions.  The R.N. will discuss any questions and concerns that you might have at the time.

Our expert team of surgeons, anesthesia providers, registered nurses, surgical technicians and support staff will provide you with skilled surgical care.  They continually train and advance their education so as to be most knowledgeable and competent in their field.

Bartlett Regional Hospital prides itself on having up to date, state of the art equipment in the Surgical Services Department.
