The Victoria General Hospital (VGH) Surgery Program provides the most up to date care in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible. Through the use of innovative technology, the VGH performs... more approximately 85% of its surgical procedures on a day surgery basis, allowing patients to stay in their homes longer and return home sooner, and return to work and their usual activities of daily living quicker.
The Hospital's same day surgery department, SurgiCentre has over 13,000 patients come through on an annual basis to prepare patients for surgery, scopes, local procedures, biopsies and to recover them prior to going home. For patients having day surgery, they must have someone stay with them for 24 hours after surgery, and they also must have a responsible adult escort them home.
