Outpatient Surgery Center
Experience the benefits of surgery in the safety and security of a hospital environment, but without an overnight hospital stay. Learn about the Outpatient Surgery Center (OPSC) at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula.
How to find the OPSC
As you arrive on the campus of Community Hospital, follow the signs for “Outpatient Surgery.” You’ll come to an area for valet parking, which is available from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. If you choose to park your car yourself or you’re dropping someone off, continue to take the driveway past the valet parking area and the Comprehensive Cancer Center entrance. You’ll come to the surgery center’s dedicated parking garage.
After exiting your vehicle, enter through the sliding glass doors. Check in right away at the outpatient surgery registration desk. Once registered, take the elevator (to the right, inside the glass doors) to the main floor. Once off the elevator, take a left and check-in at the OPSC front desk.
