Stonegate Surgery Center is currently credentialing physicians in Pain Management, Neuro-spine, Orthopedics, Urology, Gynecology, podiatry and pediatric ophthalmology
The medical and nursing staff work together to provide the best services for the patients entrusted to our care. This team approach is maintained throughout the continuum of patient care.
The treating physician has the final responsibility for screening each patient prior to the procedure to insure that lab work, history and physical and general evaluation indicate acceptability.
Patients with known malignant hyperthermia, or family history of malignant hyperthermia will not be treated.
Procedures performed in the ASC are those that generally do not exceed 90 minutes in length and do not require more than four hours recovery or convalescent time. Thus, ASC patients generally do not require extended care as a result of ASC procedures. An unanticipated medical circumstance may arise that would require a patient to stay in an overnight healthcare setting. Such situations would be most infrequent. The ASC has a transfer agreement with a local hospital (see Hospital Transfer Agreement) should this arise.
As per our Credentialing Policies, the Governing Board has approved the physicians’ requested delineation of privileges for the procedures currently to be performed in our ASC. The signed delineation of privileges are kept at the Administrator’s office in their personnel files.
