Ambulatory Surgery

Preoperative Testing Unit Appointments: (212) 312-5579


This service is comprised of six Operating Rooms, a Postanesthesia Care Unit, Ambulatory Surgery Unit and Preoperative Testing Unit.

The Operating Room patient population consists of those who have been prescheduled for same day surgery or major procedures and those patients who enter the hospital through the Emergency Department or are in-patients. The Operating Room performs an average of 500 surgical procedures monthly.

Patient care is provided by Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, Operating Room Technicians, Surgeons, Anesthesiologists, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists and Residents.

The Ambulatory Surgery Unit is a hospital-based integrated unit. The nursing staff prepares our patients undergoing same day and major procedures. We provide our patients and family members/significant others with a comfortable and caring environment.

The Preoperative Testing Unit is an area designated for the preoperative evaluation and education of elective surgical patients. Patients are given an appointment to visit the unit prior to the scheduled date of surgery. Routine laboratory tests, x-ray, and electrocardiogram as ordered by the surgeon will be performed. The patient may sign the consent for anesthesia at this time.

The perioperative nursing team is dedicated to ensuring that our patients have a smooth and safe course before, during, and after surgery.
