The Same Day Surgery Centers at Raritan Bay Medical Center are technologically advanced settings that are convenient for physicians while providing a safe, comfortable environment for you and your family. The centers provide the convenience of one location for all of your care plus the confidence in knowing that other hospital resources are available should you need additional care.
The Same Day Surgery Centers are strategically located adjacent to the hospital’s operating suites; therefore patients never have to travel far for care.
As a safe, convenient, and cost-effective alternative to inpatient surgery, both our Perth Amboy and Old Bridge locations have ambulatory facilities where admission, education, procedure, recovery and discharge are located in a single area. Both outpatient and inpatient surgical services offer the latest technology and anesthetic techniques, combined with warm, personalized care in an attractive, comfortable environment designed to put patients and families at ease. The following procedures and services are offered within the Same Day Surgery Centers:
The reception/family waiting areas are adjacent to the patient care areas so families may speak directly to physicians following procedures. They are attended by a volunteer who can check on a patient’s status. Families wait in comfort as complimentary hot refreshments, snacks, television and wireless internet services are provided. Courtesy pagers (beepers) are available if a family member has to leave the area for a short period of time. Perth Amboy features a Patient Status Tracking System that provides patient care updates in real time, all while protecting patient confidentiality and privacy.
The centers are staffed by a team of highly qualified and experienced nurses who cater to the unique needs of same day surgery patients. These nurses, and all same day surgery staff, are extremely customer focused. Their goal is to make each patient’s brief stay at Raritan Bay Medical Center as comfortable as possible in order to ensure they return home with a relaxed, positive attitude conducive to healing. Our nursing professionals are board certified in perioperative, endosocopic and perianesthesia nursing care. Our nurse recovery team members are certified in critical care nursing, as well as advanced cardiac life support (ACLS). Our anesthesiologists deliver local, regional, and general anesthesia and specialize in pain management. If you have any anesthesia concerns, you will have the opportunity to discuss them with an anesthesiologist before your procedure.
