Additional Information

Management of post-operative pain is a high priority. Our Acute Pain Service works with our patients to ensure their pain is controlled. One option may be a Patient Controlled Analgesia pump that allows patients to manage their own pain within prescribed limits. Another option is an epidural pump. The team will work with you to provide the most effective and safe method of managing your pain.

Parking passes are available at a reduced rate for family members or friends who come to the hospital to help with the daily care of a patient whose length of stay is greater than one (1) week. Parking is paid for at the time you leave so remember to bring your ticket in with you. Machines are located in the lobby as well as outside the main entrance.

Uninsured costs are the responsibility of the family/patient to cover. Costs may include any transport fees, supplies, or equipment such as support (TED) stockings or crutches.
