Outpatient Services

Harrison Memorial Hospital offers comprehensive inpatient and outpatient surgical services in a new state-of-the-art facility. With the completion of our $15 million expansion, we now offer more efficient surgical services, providing even better results for our patients and their families. This new facility, combined with our existing excellent clinical outcomes, exceptionally low infection rate, and experienced surgeons and operating room staff, make us a natural choice for your surgical services.

The 1990s saw a dramatic shift in surgeries performed on an outpatient basis. Our new operating rooms are more compatible with the demands of outpatient surgery. We designed and built new space to house more operating suites, provide maximum workspace efficiency for our staff, centralize all outpatient surgeries into one area, and offer more advantages to our patients and our surgeons. Our larger space accommodates advanced medical technology critical to remaining on the cutting edge of medicine.

Many of today’s surgical interventions are minimally invasive. Completed with “scopes” that require tiny incisions, the surgeon views his work through small cameras at the scope’s tip. These very small instruments are used in our operating rooms, when appropriate, to repair the patient’s problem. This means shorter lengths of stay for patients and dramatically reduced recovery times. Our facility makes the most of minimally invasive technology for both our surgeons and their patients.

As a member of the Joint Commission, Harrison Memorial Hospital makes patient privacy a top priority. Our patients can expect that all communication and medical records be maintained confidentially. Our new surgical services area is larger, giving patients more space for privacy and a greater ability to discuss their medical concerns with our staff without being overhead by others.
