PATIENTS TREATED ANNUALLY
About Day Care Procedures
For many minor procedures or treatments, patients can avoid overnight hospitalisation. At Yashoda we provide day care services for all kinds of surgeries, chemotherapy, endoscopy, preventive health programs and even certain types of outpatient antibiotic therapy. Our dedicated surgical daycare suite allows patients quick and efficient single point admission, treatment and discharge.
Daycare or Ambulatory care is a personal health care consultation, treatment or intervention using advanced medical technology or procedures delivered where the patient’s stay at the hospital or clinic, from the time of registration to discharge, occurs on a single calendar day. Many medical investigations and treatments for acute illness and preventive health care can be performed on an ambulatory basis, including minor surgical and medical procedures, most types of dental services, dermatology services, and many types of diagnostic procedures (e.g. blood tests, X-rays, endoscopy and biopsy procedures of superficial organs). Other types of ambulatory care services include emergency visits and rehabilitation visits.
