Thanks to our investments in the latest technologies and commitment to
retaining an expert care team, Sierra View is able to perform many surgical
procedures on an outpatient basis. Patients having procedures that once
required days or weeks of recovery time in a hospital setting are now
sleeping in their own beds just hours after their surgery.
Sierra View offers two types of outpatient surgical services--Flex Care
and our Ambulatory Surgery Department. Flex Care procedures are performed
in the hospital, with the patient usually discharged after just a few hours.
Our Ambulatory Surgery Department (ASD) opened in 2006 and is located in
a facility just a block west of the main hospital. The ASD features a
comfortable, calming setting free of the cold, "clinical" feel
that many associate with similar health care facilities. Large windows
allow natural light to feed into our warm and friendly waiting and registration
areas, and our caring staff welcomes both patients and their families
with a smile. We're also centrally located in Porterville; our facility
is easy to find and features plenty of free parking.
Most importantly, at both our Flex Care and Ambulatory Surgery Department,
you'll be under the care of an expert team of surgical professionals
who will utilize leading-edge technologies to ensure a quick and successful
procedure that requires a minimal amount of recovery time.
