Welcome to First State Surgery Center
Same day surgery now accounts for more than 75 percent of all surgical procedures performed. Thanks to advances in technology and anesthesia, even surgeries that just a few years ago required a hospital stay can now be handled safely and with greater comfort in a surgery center.
Everything about the First State Surgery Center is specially designed for same day surgery, from the streamlined, state-of-the-art operating rooms to the efficient procedures that move you smoothly from prep to operation to recovery.
Pro-Active About Providing Charity Care
The First State Surgery Center takes its commitment to provide charity care to the less fortunate in our community very seriously. The staff of the Surgery Center pro-actively contacts social service agencies, community centers, and schools several times a year in search of the uninsured or under insured in the state who are healthy enough to have outpatient orthopaedic surgery. Our surgeons provide charity care through the office, the Emergency Department, the Spine Clinic at Wilmington Hospital and the Orthopaedic Clinic at Wilmington Hospital. First State Surgery Center wants to do more than its share, so if you know someone who needs our charitable surgical services, please contact:
