When you are a surgical patient:

We understand that patients feel apprehensive about surgery. We want to make your surgical experience as comfortable and positive as possible, and help ease any anxiety you may be feeling. Our surgery center offers an atmosphere of compassionate care and support for both patients and their families.

Alton Memorial Hospital will provide you with a guide to prepare for surgery. We will be there to assist you whether you require a hospital stay or if you are able to go home the same day.

While in surgery:

Alton Memorial Hospital now offers a patient tracking monitor in the waiting area that allows you to follow your loved one’s progress throughout their surgical visit. During this time you will know when a patient begins the pre-op process, starts and completes their surgery, enters the recovery area and, finally, post-op when a family member or friend can join them before going home.

To reach Surgery, take the hospital's Platt Wing elevators down one floor to the Lower Level. The reception area is to your left as you step off the elevator.
