What We Do

The Consolidated Surgical Short Stay Unit (CSSU) is dedicated to improving the short stay experiences of our patients and their families. We focus on day surgery patients and patients staying in hospital for 3 days or less.

Within the CSSU, we have 16 beds, 10 for short stay patients and 6 for day surgery patients. We take patients from many of the divisions of surgery at UHN. Our staff is made up of healthcare professionals with expertise in short stay recovery.

Our goal is to provide you with the best possible care, and we achieve this by working together with you and your loved ones. You are all important members of our team and your input is important to us.
