Nobody looks forward to having surgery—we understand that. But when surgery is necessary and traditional hospitals aren’t the right fit for your needs, we are here to provide excellent health care. We pride ourselves on convenience and a friendly, compassionate staff.
When you come to our facility you can feel comforted that you are in a caring facility that is part of the Methodist Healthcare System—the most preferred health care provider in the San Antonio area. The Methodist Healthcare mission is “Serving Humanity to Honor God” and that is what we strive to do. Thank you for visiting our website and for considering us for your surgery needs. We look forward to meeting you.

Methodist Ambulatory Surgery Center-Medical Center
Located on the second floor of the Methodist Center on Medical Drive at Ewing-Halsell, this center offers nine large operating rooms and two gastroenterology endoscopy suites. Our center performs ear, nose and throat procedures, gynecology, pediatric, general surgery, adult general surgery, plastic surgery, oral surgery, pediatric dentistry, pain management, pediatric and adult gastrointestinal endoscopy and ophthalmology.
Our center provides a cost effective and convenient environment for patients who need surgery but do not require a prolonged center admission. Patients who choose to have surgery in an ambulatory setting arrive on the day of the procedure, have their surgery in a fully-equipped operating room, spend an appropriate amount of time under the care of a professional, experienced nursing staff and then return to the comfort of their own home to complete the recovery process. Our surgery center is certified by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
Designed exclusively for outpatient surgery, we are a state-of-the-art facility that uses the most modern surgical equipment available today. Our staff includes board certified surgeons and anesthesiologists, registered nurses and surgical technicians, professionally trained in surgical and recovery care. Our friendly team of health professionals at Methodist Ambulatory Surgery Center-Medical Center is committed to providing you the quality care you deserve.
We invite you to take a look around our website to learn more about us, our services, how you can be prepared for surgery and more.
