Kent Hospital will hold an open house of its new state-of-the-art ambulatory surgery center located in the Ambulatory Services Pavilion Wednesday, May 15, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. A ribbon cutting ceremony will start at 2 p.m. in the second floor lobby. Refreshments and tours of the new center will be provided.
The new surgery center has 28 oversized pre- and post-operative bays for a patient’s preparation and recovery. The waiting room offers free Wi-Fi, a café, and monitors so friends and family can privately track a patient’s progress.
The surgery center is equipped with eight surgery suites, five expansive and three smaller rooms, designed specifically for endoscopic technology and interventional spine procedures. The suites are equipped with and managed from a main console that allows one member of the surgical team to control various features of the room and comes with state-of-the-art anesthesia equipment.
The design of the facility allows easy access from every room to the central surgical core. The surgery center is connected directly to Kent’s full service acute care facility in the event a patient needs to be brought to the main hospital for further care.
