Inpatient surgery

Your health insurance company defines your surgery status as either “inpatient” or “outpatient.” Your surgery status is based on your insurance company’s rules and your medical needs.

At UCHealth hospitals along the Colorado Front Range, our expert surgical teams of diverse medical professionals take advantage of this period of extended care to continuously observe your health status and progress toward recovery, while adjusting the type and level of care to best meet your specific needs.

What to expect and how to prepare

Ask your doctor or the UCHealth facility where you’re having your procedure to provide any information or surgery instructions.

If you have any questions about your hospital stay, ask your doctor!
