There is a lot of talk about why we are unique and the “Coast Difference”. When you visit our facility, you are quite likely to hear our employees mention it. Quite simply, Coast Surgery Center just isn’t like other surgical facilities.
Coast is truly a “Freestanding Ambulatory Surgery Center”. We have no ties to the hospitals, we don’t have a hospital-style bureaucracy, we don’t use a hospital-based anesthesia service, we are physician-owned and operated, and we focus on the patient.
How do we do it? Well, it’s simple. We…
– Focus on the patient, assist them in understanding the services we provide,
and get them back to their normal lifestyle as fast as possible.
– Promote a healthy lifestyle.
– Support our Community.
– Treat employees as part of a team and listen to their comments and concerns.
– Provide staff with the high quality tools they need to do their jobs and provide them with
on-going continuing education to keep their skills current.
– Make everyone (patients, staff, vendors) part of the Quality Improvement process.
We are committed to providing San Diego with the finest in surgical services. We didn’t become one of the top surgery centers in San Diego by accident; it’s the result of our employee’s hard work and a focus on the patient that makes the difference.
