Inpatient & Outpatient Procedures

If you are considering or are scheduled for a surgical procedure, you may be feeling somewhat anxious and curious about what to expect. As long as the proper precautions are taken and you have a medical team you feel comfortable with, your procedure should proceed as smoothly as possible. At Daviess Community Hospital, we have taken great lengths to create a state-of-the-art surgical center staffed by knowledgeable and skilled surgeons.

We have 48 licensed beds in acute medical and surgical care, and a majority of these are in private patient rooms. We offer both inpatient and outpatient services. If you are scheduled for a minimally invasive procedure, you can leave the hospital the same day your surgery is performed, in most cases. We will go above and beyond to make sure you or your loved one is comfortable before and after the operation.
