Surgical Services

The post-anesthesia care unit is a nine-bed unit that cares for not only post-surgical patients, but also patients following special procedures. Gastrointestinal endoscopy procedures are the most common procedure. The department addresses the dynamics and complexity of pediatric, adolescent, adult, and geriatric patients needing surgical procedures 24 hours a day. The department is functionally segregated from other hospital units and is staffed and equipped with the necessary specialized equipment to meet the needs of those patients requiring surgery. The Department is located on the first floor of the hospital.

The five areas of service that make up the Surgical Services Department are surgery, pre-operative holding area, post-anesthesia care unit, special procedures room, and central sterile supply. Surgery has four operating suites. The types of surgery provided are General, Urological, Gynecological, Orthopedic, Plastic, Vascular, ENT, and Endoscopic.

The department is divided into two shifts daily Monday through Friday with a call crew available to respond within 30 minutes to after hours, weekend, and holiday emergencies.
