OUTPATIENT/SAME DAY SURGERY
Outpatient Surgery, or "Same Day Surgery", is one way Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center is helping to control the cost of quality healthcare. Outpatient Surgery provides quality care without the expense and inconvenience of an overnight stay. By entering and leaving the hospital on the same day, you eliminate the cost of overnight care and round-the-clock activities associated with a hospital stay. You do have the safety of the routine hospital visit as well as the added convenience of a comfortable recovery at home.
While Outpatient Surgery is more affordable, we offer you the security of knowing that cases requiring an overnight stay can be placed in 23-hour observation or admitted as an inpatient to our fully-equipped, acute care hospital. Our goal is to provide quality care in a comfortable environment.
The Thomas Ambulatory Surgery Center was named in honor of the late Ralph G. Thomas, M.D. Dr. Thomas practiced general surgery in Grayson County from 1953 until the time of his death in 1989. Prior to that, he served as a surgeon with the Fifth Armor Division, U.S. Army Medical Corps, during the Korean War.
The Thomas Ambulatory Surgery Center is located on Wallace Avenue directly behind Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center and the Kelley Medical Center.
