Surgery Center

The Louisville Surgery Center: A faster, less stressful alternative to hospitals.

Say goodbye to crowded waiting rooms, endless hallways, and impersonal service. For patients whose surgeries don’t require overnight stays, the Surgery Center offers outpatient surgery and related care in an efficient, comfortable, and private environment. To help you get home faster and begin the recovery process as soon as possible, you’ll be discharged much quicker compared to other facilities.

Beautiful surroundings. Advanced technologies

To put you at ease and make your experience more comfortable and relaxing, you’ll find the furnishings and décor here more like a spa than a hospital.

Yet the Surgery Center is fully equipped with the most up-to-date and advanced medical technologies. That’s one reason we’re among the very few free-standing surgery centers that are Medicare–approved.

Compassionate, dedicated staff

Our nursing and office staff are permanent, full-time, dedicated professionals who work exclusively for the Surgery Center. All members of our staff have the highest qualifications and certifications in their fields and are regularly active with their continuing education.

The Surgery Center also employs an exclusive, on-staff anesthesiology group to make sure you receive all of your care from professionals we know and trust.

A better experience for everyone—including children

Children often find the cold, impersonal environments of hospitals intimidating or frightening.

That’s why the beautiful and relaxing environment of the Surgery Center is especially ideal for juvenile patients.

Here, we encourage your child to bring her or his own toys, games, and movies—and enjoy the state-of-the-art children’s electronics we provide—to make their experience as comfortable as possible.

The Surgery Center is located in downtown Louisville with free parking on site.
