- Advance Directives
As an outpatient surgery center, we perform elective procedures on patients who are medically cleared for their procedure and who do not expect a decline in their health status.
For this reason, the surgical center will always attempt to resuscitate and transfer you to the hospital in the event of deterioration.
All procedures at the ASC fall into this policy. State law Reference: Wis Leg. subch.II of ch. DHS 94.05.
If you do have an Advance Directive, please bring a copy of this with you when you come for surgery.
Though we do not honor Advance Directives, in the event of an unplanned transfer to the hospital following your procedure, this document would be sent along with you. If you do not have an Advance Directive but would like information on this, please feel free to contact us at 715-345-0500, and we will provide you with the State of WI forms or you can ask for the forms at the time of check in for your surgery.
