Day Hospital

Surgeries and many outpatient procedures are performed in Morehead’s Day Hospital. These include major and minor surgeries, gastrointestinal procedures (endoscopies and colonoscopies), medication therapy, blood transfusions, dressing changes, and post-operative evaluations.

Many surgical procedures once requiring an overnight stay in the hospital are now performed on an outpatient basis allowing the patient to be sent home the same day.

A separate waiting area in the Day Hospital lobby is provided for the comfort and convenience of patients’ family members while procedures are being performed.
