Grand River Hospital’s day surgery is open weekdays from 6am to 9 pm and later if required. We prepare patients who have been booked for elective surgery, including same-day discharges and those admitted to inpatient surgery post-operatively.
If you were seen in the pre-surgical clinic, please go directly to day surgery on the day of your operation. We are located on the second floor of the KW Site’s C wing at 835 King Street West in Kitchener.
If you did not need to attend the pre-surgical clinic, you must register two hours before your scheduled surgery time in patient registration located on the second floor of the hospital. There is an information desk staffed by volunteers in the main lobby. They will be happy to assist you if you require directions. Keep your health card ready as well as any forms your doctor has given you.
Most day surgery patients can expect to go home three hours from the scheduled time of their surgery. You will receive a specific discharge instruction sheet and if applicable, a prescription prior to discharge.
For more detail, please read our pre-operative patient information booklet which you can find here.
