Outpatient Services

What are Outpatient Services?

Outpatient services are medical procedures or tests that can be done in a medical center without an overnight stay. Many patients like this type of treatment because it allows them to receive necessary medical care while staying at home and reducing the costs associated with staying at the hospital. Outpatient services allow patients to live a relatively normal life, simply setting aside time to attend therapy sessions.
