Advance Directives

An Advance Directive helps to assure your religious and personal beliefs will be respected in the healthcare setting. It is a useful document for an adult of any age to plan for future health care needs.

The Surgery Center of Rockville does not honor Advance Directives. If you have an Advance Directive, please bring it to the center in the unforeseen event of a transfer to another facility. Life sustaining efforts will be initiated and maintained on all patients at the Center following the Code Blue Resuscitation policy and procedure. The patient will be transferred to an acute care facility for follow-up care where their Advance Directive will be honored.

Upon request, we will provide you with contact information and forms to assist in writing an Advance Directive.
