The EAMC Surgery Center has four state-of-the-art surgical suites. In each of the rooms, the surgical equipment and supplies are on towers. Also, the Center houses a pre-op area that includes six holding bays and one isolation room, and a post-op area with five bays and an isolation room.
In keeping with East Alabama Medical Center’s mission, all the Center’s features are customer-oriented. Other features of the Center include wagons to transport pediatric patients and a Phase II recovery room outfitted with lounge chairs for outpatients and rocking chairs that parents can use to comfort small children.
The Surgery Center sees many types of general surgery, including gynecological surgeries, ENT surgeries (excluding major head/neck surgery), ophthalmologic surgery, and some orthopedic surgery. The surgeries performed in the Surgery Center are primarily, but not exclusively, outpatient.
