Surgery Services

You’re in good hands when you have surgery here at St. Mark’s Hospital. Expert surgeons and support staff, state-of-the-art facilities, and safety-focused programs combine the best of technology with a healing touch to promote your health.

The accredited anesthesiologists, nurses, technicians and surgeons are leaders in their respective fields, and are continually training and advancing their education to be the most skilled and knowledgeable they can be. At St Mark’s Hospital, we pride ourselves in being at the forefront of all types of medicine, and surgery is no exception.

And rest assured, most surgical procedures don’t require lengthy hospital stays. In fact, many require no overnight stay at all (often called “day,” “outpatient” or “same-day” surgeries). If, however, you are staying more than one night after surgery, yours will be an “inpatient” surgery.

No matter how long you stay, or what type of surgery you have at St. Mark’s Hospital, you can be certain that you'll receive the best medical attention possible.

St. Mark’s Hospital has several options to meet your surgical needs whether you are in need of inpatient or outpatient surgery in Salt Lake City. Our advanced surgical technologies and minimally invasive procedures help patients see greater results with smaller incisions and move on to faster recoveries.

Your physician will provide post-procedure instructions regarding diet, rest, exercise, and medications. The Center will provide you with a written summary of these instructions. We suggest that you pamper yourself for the first 24 hours following your procedure. Arrange for an adult to remain with you at home for at least 24 hours.

Since it is normal to feel drowsy after receiving an anesthetic, we also recommend that you postpone these activities for 24 hours after discharge:

  • Driving and operating equipment
  • Signing important papers
  • Making significant decisions
  • Drinking alcoholic beverages

If you have any unexpected problems, please call your doctor. A nurse from the Center will attempt to call you the next day to check your progress and discuss any questions you may have.

Fees, Insurance Coverage, and Payment Policy

Your surgery fee will be based on the time you spend in surgery and recovery rooms, as well as the supplies and services required to care for you. In addition to your bill, you will be billed by all physicians who cared for you, such as surgeon and anesthesiologist. A portion of your bill is due at the time of service (i.e. co-pay, co-insurance, or deductibles). We will ask for a deposit unless your insurance documentation notates otherwise. A representative from Patient Access Department will be contacting you to obtain all of the necessary registration information. The hospital participates in many insurance plans and managed care contracts.

A financial counselor may contact you prior to your stay regarding your portion of the hospital bill. If you anticipate difficulty financing your hospitalization, please contact the financial counselor at (801) 268-7263 to make payment arrangements.

Your surgeon’s and anesthesiologist’s fees will be billed separately. (Please ask your physician for an estimate of these fees prior to surgery).

Some procedures like cosmetic surgery and dental work are often not covered by insurance. You will be asked to pay these charges in full at the time of surgery.
