Outpatient Services

Outpatient Services are medical procedures or tests that are done in the hospital; most are performed in the same day. Many procedures, diagnostic tests, and other treatments can be done in only a few hours. Outpatient Services include diagnostic tests and procedures such as endoscopy, colonoscopy, biopsy procedures, lab tests and diagnostic imaging that can be performed and the results are typically delivered the same day. Treatments include many surgeries, chemotherapy and physical therapy. Sleep studies require an overnight stay.

Outpatient Services are Convenient and Safe

These procedures are all performed in the safety of a hospital setting. Outpatient care tends to be less expensive since it is often less involved and does not require a patient’s continued presence in a facility.

Outpatient Services Include:
