The Children’s Hospital new surgery center offers close to home benefitPublished 7/30/2008

The Children’s Hospital has expanded its Network of Care to include a new surgery center, which will increase ambulatory surgery services within the south metro area.

The Children’s Hospital South Surgery Center opened July 7, 2008. The new facility is designed to enhance surgery capacity and efficiency for patients, while providing the benefit of staying closer to home.

The specialties providing care at The Children’s Hospital South Surgery Center include:

v Dentistry

v Gastroenterology

v Orthopedics

v Sports Medicine

v Otolaryngology

Equipped with 16 rooms and spaces for pre- and post-operating and recovery, the new site will improve quality and convenience for patients and families.

The 10,000 square-foot facility will be fully staffed by Children’s physicians and nurses, with surgical services being offered from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Scheduling for surgical procedures at this location will continue through the main surgery scheduling office, providing ease of access and availability.

"We at The Children’s Hospital have a commitment to expand care to all kids, and in opening the South Surgery Center, we are excited and pleased to be bringing our 100-year tradition of outstanding care to patients and families in the south metro area," said Jim Shmerling, president and CEO of The Children’s Hospital.

The Children’s Hospital performs over 14,000 surgical procedures for infants, children and adolescents each year.

Board Certified pediatric surgeons treat children for a wide variety of congenital, infectious, traumatic and other specialized problems.

Through collaboration among pediatric specialties, young surgical patients receive the most comprehensive continuum of care.

In addition to departments of pediatric surgical expertise the multidisciplinary surgical care team includes pediatric anesthesiologists, pediatric critical care doctors, neonatologists, pediatric emergency medicine specialists pediatric radiologists, pediatric nurses and other pediatric support persons including therapists and child life specialists.

Our preparing for surgery section will help you and your child know what to expect before, during and after an operation.

The Children’s Hospital knows from experience that our young patients and their parents or guardians have many questions about what will happen when they visit the hospital.

The more you know about your child’s operation, the more helpful and reassuring you can be.

Children learn how to manage life’s bumps and bruises by watching and listening to their parents.

That is why your support and knowledge now - before the operation - is so important.
