Surgical Services is designed to meet the dynamic and complex needs of pediatric, adolescent, adult and geriatric patients requiring surgical interventions. The department is functionally separate from other hospital units and is staffed and equipped with the necessary specialized equipment to meet the needs of the surgical patients.
The five areas of service that make up the Surgical Services Department are surgery, pre-admission testing (PAT),outpatient surgery, post-anesthesia care unit (recovery room), endoscopy and Central Sterile Supply.
With six operating suites, the types of surgery provided are:
- Plastic and cosmetic surgery
- Ear, nose and throat (ENT)
- Robotic Surgery
There are 16 beds in surgery. The post-anesthesia care unit (recovery room) is a 12-bed unit that recovers not only post-surgical patients, but also patients from special procedures. Gastrointestinal endoscopy procedures are performed in the GI Lab. Central Sterile Supply cleans, disinfects and sterilizes instruments and equipment for surgery and all other hospital departments.
