Perioperative Services is the "front door" to patients having
inpatient and outpatient surgery and pain management treatment at the
facility. The new Perioperative Services and Surgical Services facility
is located on the second floor of the five-story Highland Park 4 building,
which adjoins the hospital.
The core of the project is the new Perioperative Services center (formerly
called Deaconess Day Surgery). Coordinated services such as pre-surgical
testing, anesthesia consultations and pre-operative patient education
will be conducted in one location.
The Perioperative Services and Surgical Services offers a full range of
surgical services as well as a variety of diagnostic and interventional
procedures in an environment designed to provide patients and their families
with the highest level of surgical care combined with support before,
during and after surgery.
Features of the combined departments include an operating suite with five
additional operating rooms, 18 perioperative/pre-surgery bays, new physiological
monitoring equipment, new post anesthesia care unit (PACU) with nine PACU
bays and two PACU isolation rooms, three family consultation rooms for
post surgical discussions with physicians and one surgical family waiting room.
