Same Day Surgery, also called "Outpatient Surgery," allows patients to undergo certain surgical procedures without having to stay overnight in a hospital.
This type of procedure is convenient for patients, reduces costs and reserves hospital beds for patients who require inpatient care for more serious conditions.
Our Same Day Surgery staff oversees your entire stay, from the time you arrive for surgery to when you are discharged. They also assist patients who may be admitted after surgery.
The Same Day Surgery Unit is located at the Alfond Center for Health in Augusta and the Thayer Center for Health in Waterville.
