Day Procedures

Alpine Health is a Multi-Purpose Service and as a public health organisation, we provide a facility in which your doctor is able to perform your procedure.

This Multi-Purpose Service does not have Doctors on staff at the three hospitals. All of the procedural work is performed by Doctors credentialed by the Board of Directors. Some of these services are provided on a private basis by your doctor and may be billed to you directly by him / her. For further clarification discuss this with your Doctor.
