The Surgecenter's tradition of exceptional patient care began more than 25 years ago when it was founded in 1976 (at its original site) as one of the first independent outpatient surgery centers in Northern California, and only the fourth in the nation.
Personalized, Quality Care
The Surgecenter is the facility of choice for those seeking a more positive and personalized surgical experience than traditional hospitals can provide. High patient satisfaction, low complication rates, a friendly atmosphere and low overhead are key to the Surgecenter's appeal. The Surgecenter constantly monitors its quality of care to ensure that it continues to meet its mission of providing a pleasant, efficient, safe and predictable environment where the patient is the primary focus.
Surgeries and procedures are performed without the delays that often occur in a conventional hospital setting. Patients are provided optimum privacy and comfort during all stages of care. The entire system, from registration to discharge, is streamlined to minimize waiting and maximize efficiency. The latest state-of-the-art surgical technology is available to physicians and their patients. The Surgecenter's constant awareness of cost containment results in lower fees for patients.
The Surgecenter is licensed by the State of California as an ambulatory surgical center, certified by Medicare and is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Those credentials assure that the facility is compliant with the highest standards of health care and is equipped to meet any medical emergency that might arise during the course of surgery or performance of a procedure.

The staff members of the Surgecenter are proud to continue a tradition of high-quality, individualized care in ambulatory surgery.
