Having Surgery?

Harrison’s Surgical Services treats more than 13,000 people each year. We offer all major surgical specialties, including general surgery, vascular and open-heart surgery, oral and maxillofacial, orthodontics, orthopaedics, gynecology, plastic and reconstructive, podiatry, urology and ophthalmology.

More than 90 physicians have privileges to practice in Harrison’s surgical department. We maintain two separate state-of-the-art facilities. Bremerton’s surgical department specializes in inpatient care, while the Silverdale’s focus is on outpatient procedures.

Whether you are having an outpatient or an inpatient procedure, our goal is for you to have a safe and comfortable recovery. We encourage patients to take an active role in their healthcare by:

  • Following the instructions you receive at your pre-admit appointment, like fasting for 12 hours or refraining from smoking before surgery.
  • Providing as complete a medical history as you can, with information about any allergies and any medications you may be taking, including vitamins and herbal remedies.
  • Asking questions about your procedure and follow-up treatment.
  • Having a plan for when you are discharged from the hospital.
