The Same Day Center at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset provides surgical, therapeutic and diagnostic procedures on an outpatient basis, offering exceptional and convenient medical care for our patients and peace of mind for their families. Patients generally return home the same day, unless their conditions change and an overnight stay is warranted.
Surgical same day procedures, such as vascular, gynecologic, urologic, plastic, orthopedic, ophthalmologic and dental surgery, are performed in one of our operating suites. Local or general anesthesia or monitored sedation may be administered. Patients who receive general anesthesia are monitored in our Post Anesthesia Care Unit.
Non-surgical procedures include laser treatment, gastrointestinal (GI) procedures, chemotherapy and transfusions. Depending on the procedure, these may be performed in the GI Center, Radiology, the Regional Heart Center, the Cancer Center or other treatment areas in the medical center. Patients recuperate in the appropriate same day care area until they are discharged by orders from their physician.
