At Redwood Area Hospital, our surgery team is committed to providing the best possible outcomes for our patients with the personal care that can often be lost in surgical centers or larger facilities. We have a talented and compassionate surgery staff that understands your surgery is a big deal. We will give you the time you need to feel as comfortable as possible with your care.
Many of the surgical procedures done at Redwood Area Hospital are designed for you to return to your home the same day as your surgery. You will spend less total time at the hospital because many preparations are taken care of before the day of your scheduled surgery.
If your surgery requires an inpatient stay, you can learn more about what to expect during your stay here in our patient guide.

Medicare, Medicare Advantage Plans, Medicaid, and private insurance companies encourage the use of short stay choices since they are cost-reducing alternatives and are also more convenient for the patient.
It is your responsibility to:
- Notify your insurance company before your admission and
- Obtain necessary prior authorization
To take advantage of same day services, you must actively participate in your own care. Carefully follow the instructions your physician and the hospital staff give you.
