Ambulatory Surgery Center

Ambulatory Surgery Center

Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs) are designed for surgeries that do not require hospital admissions. Because ASCs must adhere to some of the most highly regulated standards of excellence in the industry, patients can be assured of receiving not only the best, but also the most cost effective approach to care.

Riverpark's Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) will offer our region:

  • High-quality, cost-effective outpatient surgical procedures
  • Flexible scheduling, easy access, a comfortable, stress free environment
  • State-of-the-art Operating Rooms
  • A dedicated, caring, attentive nursing staff focused on patient satisfaction


Patient Benefits

Our focus for the patient is on comfort and convenience. For example, River Park Ambulatory Surgery Center has a spacious, comfortable waiting room where the business office personnel attend to the needs of patients and their families.

There is a private conference room between the waiting room and recovery so that the physician can discuss a family member's procedure in private with the family. No more discussions in front of the elevator! The pre-op area has individual cubicles, some with toilets and doors to assure maximum privacy. There is room for family to be with the patient before surgery.

Built with the patient in mind, Riverpark's Ambulatory Surgery Center consists of three operating suites and all supportive services. Construction of ambulatory surgical suites is strictly regulated. Riverpark's suites, designed by an architect who is a specialist in medical facilities, are constructed to regulation down to the last detail.

We use only the latest and most advanced instrumentation systems. Our philosophy going forward will be to always place the best instruments in the physician's hands.

Cost savings for our patients is important to us. Fees for outpatient surgeries can be as much as one third less expensive than full service hospital procedures with no compromise in quality. These economies are passed on to the patient.
