Same Day Surgery
Saint Clare's operates Same-Day Surgery units at its hospitals in Denville
and Dover. These award-winning facilities are staffed by specialized nursing
and clinical professionals and patients receive the same levels of quality
care, compassion and individualized attention that they would receive
if they were admitted to the hospital. With these facilities located within
the hospital, the full complement of acute care medical services is available
immediately if needed.
Same-day surgery offers benefits to patients over conventional inpatient
surgical stays in the hospital. Patients spend less time in the hospital,
usually an average of four hours, and since they don't stay overnight,
it means decreased financial burden for them and their healthcare insurers.
There is indirect benefit, too. By nature, same-day surgery is less invasive
and has reduced recovery time, allowing patients to return to work and
full activity sooner.

The Center was made possible by a generous contribution from longtime Saint

stations, a larger main waiting room and a "quiet" waiting room
for visitors. The waiting room has a 50" television and tracking
board so visitors are able to track their loved one’s location in
the surgical area. The Tiedemann Center for Ambulatory Surgery provides
our patients with the latest in surgical care in an updated and comfortable
