How is Portsmouth Regional Ambulatory Surgery Center different from a Hospital?

Because a hospital must be staffed and equipped to treat all types of medical problems, it provides a much broader range of services than your current needs require. Portsmouth Regional Ambulatory Surgery Center is designed exclusively for outpatient surgery which means we are able to offer a convenient, comfortable, and generally less costly alternative to a hospital.

The Center's warm surroundings and increased level of individual attention minimizes the stress often associated with surgery. You will be released within hours of surgery to complete your recovery in the comfort of your home. Our pleasant atmosphere and special attention are particularly helpful in easing the fears of children who are scheduled for surgery.

Reduced cost is another advantage of the surgery center. Your care does not demand an extended stay therefore your cost will be significantly lower than a hospital inpatient procedures. Most procedures are covered by health insurance and Medicare.

Portsmouth Regional Ambulatory Surgery Center IS similar to a hospital in these respects:

  1. Your surgeon is supported by a highly skilled team of Anesthesiologists, registered nurses and other qualified medical personnel specially trained in surgical and recovery care.
  2. Our surgical suites are equipped with sophisticated monitors and highly technical equipment and instrumentation.
