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.
