How do I prepare for surgery?
  • Read the information that you were given from your doctor.
  • Follow your doctor instructions about your medications.
  • Depending on the surgical procedure a medical preparation list will be provided to you.
  • Bring your driver’s license, list of medications, insurance.
  • Dress in comfortable clothes.
  • Make car arrangements. You may need someone to drive you home.
What happens here?
This is where the final preparation for surgery is provided. The IV fluids are started and home medications are checked and updated. The patient is transported to the operating room for surgery, which is conveniently located in the Santiam Surgery Center on the first floor of the Hospital. After surgery, the patient returns to his or her private unit while pain and nausea is monitored. Home care instruction is provided to the patient.
Post-Anesthesia Care Unit "PACU"
The Recovery Room or Post-Anesthesia Care unit, referred to as the PACU, is where patients are transported from their operating room, under the supervision of their Anesthesiologist and specially trained RN’s and CNA’s. Here, pain and nausea are managed once the patient wakes up from anesthesia. Open airways and breathing are observed and documented. Fluids, medications, and warming blankets are given as needed. When the patient meets all of the recovery benchmarks, he or she is transferred back to the Same Day Surgical Care Unit or to a private patient room within the Hospital.

Surgical Equipment

Our Operating Rooms (ORs) are larger than standard ORs and equipped with the latest technology, enabling our medical team to provide the best care possible.

Equipment Rooms
Large booms are mounted to the ceiling keeping equipment off the floor and are more conducive for the surgical team to access. This offers a safer working environment that is easier to clean.
Operating Lights
Cutting edge colored LED lights blend to provide our surgeons with unparalleled viewing clarity for efficient and safe procedures. These advanced surgical lights deliver the industries’s top intensity while using the least amount of power.
Laminar Flow
State-of-the-art laminar flow “air curtains” create a sterile field over the operating area. While microbiologically clean air flows over the patient from above, outside contaminants are swept away through special wall vents.
High-Def Monitors
High definition monitors allow the Surgeons to view laparoscopic surgeries more clearly. The medical team can also view both old and new x-rays on the monitors while viewing current images from cameras inside the body.

This hospital has the most wonderful staff! From the receptionist, doctors, nurses, everyone I’ve met have been the most caring and understanding individuals I’ve ever met. Ps the people who work in the kitchen who make the meals are outstanding!!
