Same Day Surgery Center Visitation Policy


Same Day Surgery Center (SDSC) recognizes the value of family/support person interaction in the healing process. We are taking measures to prevent COVID exposure for patients, their support person, physicians, and staff so we may continue to provide a healthy environment and serve our community.


Our visitation guidelines follow.


1. Currently, we allow one family member/support person with the patient who is having outpatient surgery or a procedure. This is to be the same person during the entire stay. If the patient requires special assistance during the stay, please discuss this with the nursing staff during your phone call before the surgery.


2. Overnight patients spending the night may have up to two different people visit but one at a time. Presently, no overnight family member/support person allowed.


3. Same Day Surgery Center is committed to protecting our patients and staff. We require that our staff wear masks when encountering patients and visitors. Also require all patients and visitors wear medical-grade face masks. We are happy to provide a mask for you.

4. We ask that everyone practice social distancing to the extent that is practical.

5. All patients and visitors are asked to screen themselves for COVID-19 symptoms before entering the facility. If you have any symptoms, a pending COVID-19 test or recent contact with a COVID-19 positive person, you must not enter the facility. Please contact your physician’s office to reschedule.

6. Please wash your hands or use hand sanitizer when entering the building or patient’s room.

7. Visiting hours are from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.


Thank you for your patience and understanding as we strive to ensure the safety and welfare of our patients, visitors, and staff.
