Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center recently hosted two events to dedicate and bless the all-new Ambulatory Surgery Center. The events provided an exciting opportunity to tour the center before it officially opened on August 12th.

Over 300 people, including hospital employees and members of the community, attended the afternoon ribbon cutting on Thursday, August 1st. On the same day, over 100 board members, physicians, and dignitaries joined the evening dedication to get a sneak peek of the center.

This newly built state-of-the-art facility features four innovative operating suites and beautifully designed private rooms for pre-op and recovery. The center will improve access to a highly trained and experienced surgical staff who will perform a broad range of same-day surgical procedures. Patients will have access to an elevated level of same-day surgical treatment in a space designed to maximize comfort and quality.

This is more than a change of location for same-day surgeries at Good Samaritan; the new center will provide concierge service to patients to smooth the entire day from arrival to departure. The facility is patient- and family-centered with efficient and streamlined processes, a spacious waiting lounge, and plenty of free parking just outside the entrance. In addition, the new Ambulatory Surgery Center will enable the inpatient operating rooms to develop and improve services.

The Ambulatory Surgery Center is in the Suffern Medical Pavilion, conveniently located adjacent to Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center at 257 Lafayette Avenue (Route 59) in Suffern, NY 10901.
