The new Surgery Waiting Room is now open. In early Fall an electronic board in the waiting room will track the patient’s progress through surgery allowing families to know what phase of the surgery process their family member is in (i.e. surgery has started , now in recovery etc.) An additional new benefit is the location of two restrooms in the waiting room area so families no longer have to walk a distance to find a restroom. The new Surgery Waiting Room is part of a larger surgery renovation and addition now under construction which also will feature a covered canopy for picking up patients and additional operating and recovery rooms.
