Post Acute Care Unit (PACU) 

The 9-bed Post Acute Care Unit (PACU) was designed to accommodate both the preparing of patients for surgery and their post-operative care.  The space has been designed with a central nurses’ station with patient bays surrounding it, allowing the nurses to have direct visual and audio contact of the patients.

Family Waiting Room 
The family waiting room was place intentionally on an exterior wall with large expansive windows with views to the exterior environment to help connect waiting family members with the outdoors while waiting on their loves ones in surgery.

Here are some special instructions a patient may need before coming for tests or procedures:

  • The surgeon's office will provide instructions for the day of your procedure including the time you are to report to the pre-admission testing area which is located in the hospital’s main lobby.
  • A pre-operative packet of information will be given to all surgery patients when they visit the pre-admission testing nurse. Please bring any questions you may have with you.
  • Patients who require anesthesia will have a consult with an Anesthesiologist prior to their procedure.
  • It is important to plan for your discharge needs prior to your surgery.
  • All patients are to remain NPO (nothing by mouth) unless instructed differently pre-operatively by the Anesthesiologist or nurse. 
  • All patients being given any kind of sedation or anesthesia will need a responsible adult to drive them home after their procedure.
  • Please leave all valuables at home.
