Day Surgery

At some time or other, almost everyone is faced with having surgery. Using the latest technology, our highly trained surgeons, anesthesiologists, and nurses work in state-of-the-art surgery suites. These professionals can perform almost any surgery you might need-many on an outpatient basis, where you check into the hospital in the morning and by evening are recovering in the comfort of your own home.

Day surgeries are performed at each CHI Franciscan Health hospital as well as in dedicated day surgery centers in Tacoma, Gig Harbor, and Federal Way. Of course, if your surgery requires an overnight stay, you will find staff and facilities at each of our hospitals exclusively dedicated to your recovery.

General location information for the other locations with day surgeries:
St. Joseph Medical Center (Tacoma)
St. Clare Hospital (Lakewood)
St. Anthony Hospital (Gig Harbor)

We also have a Transfusion-free medicine and surgery program for patients who wish to avoid the use of donor blood during medical and surgical procedures.
