Lifespan Surgical Services

Patient Guide

At the Ambulatory Outpatient Surgical Center at Rhode Island Hospital, whether your visit is unexpected or the result of a planned procedure, our staff will do everything possible to make your stay comfortable.

Our goal is to make this a positive experience for you. The ambulatory surgical nurse will be your primary resource for care, instruction and support. The nurse shares the responsibility for evaluating and addressing your needs with many members of the health care team. In fact, a team approach-interaction among physicians, anesthesiologists, nurses, technicians, support staff and you and your family-is vital to a successful visit.
