Day Surgery

Welcome to Day Surgery

Please read this information carefully, and follow all the instructions for your scheduled procedure. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at 919-350-8730.

Two types of patients come to the Day Surgery Center:

  • Outpatients – patients who have their procedure or surgery and go home by 8:30 pm the same day.
  • Outpatients to be admitted – patients who come to the Day Surgery Center the same day as their procedure or surgery and are admitted to a hospital room from the recovery room.

What to Expect Before & After Your Visit

Patient Registration

The Patient Registration entrance is located just past the Andrews Center. Parking is in the Orange Deck (P3) across from Patient Registration. This deck is to be used by you and your escort on the day of your surgery.

WakeMed visitors will park in a separate parking deck. Please see the enclosed map for directions to Visitor Parking, Green Deck (P1).
