A Message From the Executive Director:

As we enter uncharted territories with a global pandemic the Surgery Center of Southern Oregon is committed to your health and safety.  The Surgery Center of Southern Oregon has had a policy since the business started in 1997 to not schedule people for procedures with infectious illness.  Our facility cares for healthy people needing ambulatory GI procedures, Pain procedures and surgeries that allow for discharge within 24 hours of arrival. 

We screen patients prior to their arrival and upon arrival for any signs or symptoms of illness, an additional procedure we have implemented is screening our vendor reps and limiting their access to our building.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out for any questions regarding our infection prevention policy because our goal is to be your trusted partner in health.


Tammy Spohn, MBA, RN, NEA-BC,

Executive Director,

Surgery Center of Southern Oregon




The Staff of the Surgery Center of Southern Oregon would like to welcome you to our web site. We’re glad you stopped by.

Here, you will find information on what goes on in an Ambulatory
Surgery Center, the reasons why Ambulatory Surgery might be the
right choice for you, what to expect when you have Surgery at
our Center, and how to find us.

Unlike a hospital, an ambulatory surgery center caters to the needs of patients
who do not anticipate a long stay. You will be contacted by phone by a SCSO staff
member prior to your admission to determine your individual needs.

Your doctors office will instruct you as to what paperwork you will need to bring
in with you. You can expect to be greeted promptly on arrival by our friendly,
experienced staff. You will meet your health care team (Anesthesiologist, RN, and
other health care professionals) during your stay with us.

Your procedure will be performed in our modern Surgery Suites. All the latest
technologies and equipment are utilized at SCSO. If you have a surgical procedure,
you will spend a short time recovering in our 1st level recovery area, and then move
to a comfortable lounge chair to continue recovering. At this point, your family members
can join you in a relaxed, family oriented environment.

You will be going home with full home care instructions. Remember that you cannot
drive yourself home and will need a designated driver.
