St. Barnabas Ambulatory Surgery Center

Many surgeries that required a hospital stay just a decade ago can now be done on an outpatient basis, allowing the patient to return home the same day to heal in the comfort and privacy of their own home.  Advances, such as the use of laparoscopic surgical instruments, which require only a few tiny incisions, leave the patient with less pain and no incisions to heal.

To meet the growing demand for outpatient surgery procedures, St. Barnabas opened a new state-of-the-art 4,300-square-foot Ambulatory Surgery Center in 2009. The Center accommodates adult patients undergoing general, vascular, gynecological, orthopedic, dental and cosmetic surgery, as well as colonoscopies and endoscopies, among many other procedures.  Surgery is performed by in the hospital’ new state-of-the-art operating suite comprised of five gleaming ORs, each equipped with the most advanced technology.
The patient-friendly Center has twelve rooms, each with a flat-screen TV, a beautiful waiting area for family members, and a spa-like décor that helps promote patient comfort and reduces anxiety prior to surgery.

Nurses will provide detailed patient education prior to discharge. Patients who may not be clinically ready for discharge will be admitted to the appropriate unit where they will receive the highest quality of care.

Conveniently located on the first floor of the hospital, the Center has a patient drop-off and pick-up area and provides free parking just steps away from the entrance.
