Surgery at Belleville General Hospital

​​​​​The pandemic has not yet been declared over, and Quinte Health continues to maintain key infection control precautions in order to maintain the safety of our patients and staff.  We have a duty to provide acute and emergent care for vulnerable patients in our community.  This means we must continue to practice extreme caution against respiratory and infectious diseases within our hospital and be ready to respond to new risks as we navigate our way through the pandemic.

Day Surgery (patients can go home the same day as the surgery):

Day surgery patients can expect to be at the hospital for a period of 3 to 6 hours. Family members are welcome to wait in the waiting room. Alternatively, they can provide a phone contact if they choose to leave the hospital. When you are ready for discharge, a nurse will contact your family member and instruct them to wait for you (in their vehicle) outside the Sills entrance.

Please remember that family members are not to leave their vehicle unattended at the Sills entrance. Patients will be portered to the Sills entrance to be picked up.

Admission after surgery (patients require a hospital stay after the surgery): 

If a patient is being admitted to the hospital following surgery, the family member will be instructed to meet the patient on Quinte 4 following the procedure. Please click here for a patient guide for admission surgery.
