COVID 19 Crisis:

In an effort to protect our patients, community and staff, Vail Valley Surgery Center has temporarily closed its Vail location thorough May 25th. Our Edwards facility is now open for surgical procedures. In order to reduce exposure, patients’ designated ride/care provider will only be allowed to enter the building when the patient is ready to be sent home. Only one adult per patient will be allowed. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during these times.
