What types of patients are appropriate for UC Health Surgical Hospital?
We select procedures and patients based upon several factors. First, we look at a patient’s medical history and co-morbidities. Risk assessment is made based upon the American Society of Anesthesiologists’ physical classification system (ASA class). We also have height/weight guidelines for our patients. Patients who are ASA 1, 2 or 3 and who fit the height/weight guidelines are appropriate for our facility.
Who should I contact about staff privileges?
Lesley Gilbertson, MD, is our medical director. Our medical staff is comprised of both community providers and physicians affiliated with UC Health hospitals. We’d be glad to give you a tour if you are interested in seeing the hospital. To inquire about staff privileges, please call 513-475-8300.
