We understand that the prospect of surgery – either for yourself or a loved one – can be very stressful. Choosing a surgeon and a hospital dedicated to making the experience as safe, comfortable and convenient as possible can greatly reduce your stress. At King’s Daughters, we perform thousands of procedures every year across a wide range of disciplines. Our surgical teams specialize within their fields, staying on top of the latest developments, techniques and innovations so they can bring the most advanced care to you. We provide inpatient and outpatient surgeries at both King's Daughters Medical Center in Ashland, and King's Daughters Medical Center Ohio, in Portsmouth.

Whether you're having surgery or another procedure at King's Daughters Medical Center in Ashland or King's Daughters Ohio, we've prepared a brochure that will help you get ready. The booklet, Preparing for Your Procedure, will be given to you either in your surgeon's office, or by our PreAdmission Testing team.
