About Us

Surgicare of Central Jersey is a multi-specialty ambulatory surgery center. We are licensed by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services and accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Healthcare. Procedures are performed in many surgical specialties as well as Gastroenterology and pain management.

We opened in 1985 and are owned by 20 physicians in 2015 Virtua Hospital and Surgical Care Affiliates formed a partnership with Surgicare of Central Jersey, LLC. Additionally, other physicians have privileges to perform surgery and procedures at SurgiCare. Our staff of Board Certified Physicians, Surgeons, Anesthesiologists and Registered Nurses have many years of experience in their respective specialties. They are supported by a staff of Nursing Assistants, Clerical Staff and Technicians, all of whom give our patients high quality care. We take great pride in the overwhelmingly positive responses from our patients.

Why choose an ambulatory surgery center? Ambulatory surgery centers have existed for more than 20 years. They have proven to provide cost-effective, personalized, efficient patient care. Accredited and licensed ambulatory surgery centers are required to abide by the same regulations and safety guidelines as hospitals.

The information on this web site will help you to prepare for your visit to Surgicare. If your primary care physician asked you to have testing done prior to your procedure, please forward the results of these tests to Surgicare as well.

Please be aware that the appointment time given to you by your doctor may be changed, depending on his or her schedule. You will be called by a nurse from Surgicare the day before your procedure to confirm your time, review some medical information and give you any pre-operative instructions.

Our billing department will verify your insurance coverage before your visit. They will contact you if they have questions. If they do not call you, your insurance has been accepted. If you have a co-pay or deductable, you will be required to pay it on the day of your procedure. If you do not have insurance or if you are having a procedure that is not covered, you will need to pay for your surgery in advance. We accept American Express, Mastercard, and Visa.
