How Can I Have My Surgery at Simi Valley Hospital’s Aspen Outpatient Surgery Center?

Many community members — and even physicians and surgeons — are not yet aware of the outstanding capabilities of the Aspen Outpatient Surgery Center. However, it’s very easy to get top-notch care right in your own community. Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Determine if your insurance covers care at Simi Valley Hospital. If you’re not sure, ask your employer’s benefits manager (usually in the human resources or personnel office) or your insurance provider.
  2. Make sure that the surgeon who will be performing the procedure also accepts your insurance and has privileges to operate at Simi Valley Hospital
  3. Ask your surgeon if your procedure can be performed in the Aspen Outpatient Surgery Center. If so, request that the surgeon do the work there. He or she can make all the necessary arrangements.
