Vail Valley Surgery Centers are now open. In an effort to protect our patients, community and staff, we have updated our visitor policy. For surgical procedures, patients' designated ride/care provider will now only be allowed to enter the building when the patient is ready to be sent home. Only one adult per patient will be allowed. For minor procedures, including pain injections and GI endoscopy, no visitors will be allowed to enter (patient drop off and pick up only). We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
