Same-Day Surgery and Post- Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU)

Upon arrival, patients are shown to one of 14 private rooms to prepare for surgery. Each room is equipped with a television and lockers for storage. After surgery, patients recover in the post-anesthesia care unit, an 11-bed space with a nutrition area. The Center is designed with modern colors and the look of wood-grained floors for a pleasing, comforting appearance.

Surgical Suites​​

The Center has six, spacious surgical suites and is the first in Greater Cincinnati to be equipped with Stryker 1288 Second Generation High Definition cameras, which have tremendous applications for surgery. The images, displayed on 23-inch, high definition monitors, give the surgeon an incredibly clear view when performing minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures, such as hysterectomies, tubal ligations and endometriosis and infertility treatments. The camera system takes advantage of telemedicine technology and connects directly to the pathology department for remote, real-time consultations— bridging a distance of ten floors instantly and speeding the decision-making process. Surgical viewing is enhanced by specially designed lamps, each with 39 L.E.D. bulbs, which produce a clean, bright light for improved visualization.

Each suite allows for compatibility with the daVinci Surgical System for robotic-assisted surgery, which, in some cases, can give surgeons better precision, increased range of motion and improved patient access compared to surgery by hand alone.​​​
