Approximately 70% of surgical procedures performed at Ephrata Community Hospital are done on an outpatient basis. That means that most patients have their surgery, recover and go home on the same day. The Day Surgery Center at Ephrata Community Hospital is making outpatient surgery easier for patients and their families.

The Day Surgery Center has six operating rooms and other rooms equipped to handle a wide range of procedures, from tonsillectomies to laparoscopic and arthroscopic surgery to laser procedures on the eye. Physicians from every surgical specialty use the Day Surgery Center, for care of patients of all ages.

Patients are prepared for surgery, have their procedure and recover all on the same floor of the Health Pavilion. On the day of surgery, patients enter the Day Surgery Center from the Second Floor entrance to the Ephrata Health Pavilion (located on the side of the building facing Rte 272).
