The Surgical Suite
The Surgical Suite includes Operating Room (OR) and Post Anesthetic Care Unit (PACU). There are four operating rooms and one endoscopic suite that provides all surgical services including, general surgery, orthopedics, gynaecology, thoracic, urology and ear, nose and throat surgery, ophthalmology, oral-maxillo-facial and dentistry. Caesarean sections and endoscopic procedures are also performed in these surgical suites. Procedures are provided for inpatients and outpatients with anesthetic coverage as required.
The Operating Room (OR)
The OR is for elective procedures at pre-determined scheduled surgery times. While elective surgeries are scheduled, scheduled elective surgeries may be changed based on urgent cases and/or surgeon availability. On call staff are available after regular hours.
Post Anesthetic Care Unit (PACU)
The PACU receives the patients after the surgical experience to provide patient care for the immediate post-operative period following surgery. From this area the patient is transferred to the Inpatient Surgery Unit or the Outpatient Surgery Unit.
