Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
The Same-Day Surgery Center provides a progressive ambulatory facility designed for the care of children admitted for surgical and diagnostic procedures that require general anesthesia or narcotic sedation. The center also prepares children and their families for procedures that may require an overnight stay in the hospital.
The Same-Day Surgery Center incorporates distraction therapy techniques to improve the hospital experience for our patients. Generously funded by American Textile Co., distraction therapy in the center consists of materials and images that serve to divert a child’s attention from the clinical nature of his or her visit. With room designs ranging from underwater adventures to tree houses, patients are invited to imagine themselves someplace else as they search for treasures, count objects, and envision magical places and adventures. Many patients find the distraction therapy elements to be both engaging and calming – making the overall surgical experience better for the patients and their loved ones.
Referrals are required from primary care physicians or other Children's Hospital specialty services. Referrals for patients enrolled in managed care insurance plans also may require authorization from the insurance provider and primary care physician. All necessary referral and authorization forms must be received before the patient's visit. For accurate provider numbers or more information, please call the office number listed on the left.
