Keeping You Comfortable

We have built an expert team of surgeons, nurses, technicians, and anesthesia providers that our patients have come to know and value at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. These providers are specially trained for pediatric and adult outpatient surgical care. You can trust that everyone at our facility is working together to create an experience that is as convenient and comfortable as possible for patients and families.

Here is what you can expect:

  • Expertise in minimally invasive surgery, provided in technologically-advanced surgical suites
  • A patient-friendly environment with separate adult and pediatric admission and waiting areas, each with comfortable accommodations and internet access
  • Procedures to start within 60 minutes of admission and discharge within 30 to 90 minutes after surgery is complete
  • A private area for pre-operative and recovery care where one or two family members can spend time with the patient before and after surgery
  • A patient and family care coordinator to keep families updated on their loved one's progress
  • An on-site food service area with a few select food and drink options and refrigerators for families' convenience
  • Follow-up phone calls and care advice after the patient goes home

Welcoming our youngest visitors

  • A separate pediatric waiting room with a television, toys, games, and books
  • The kind, helping hands of a whole team of nurses, technicians, child life specialists and doctors that are among the best in the Northeast, all dedicated to the safety and comfort of your child
