The Perioperative Center
The Perioperative Center is a 50,000 sq. ft. addition to Bristol Hospital that houses preadmission testing, ambulatory surgery, endoscopy, operating rooms, post-anesthesia care unit (PACU), Central Sterile Supply, an eye laser room and one minor surgical suite. Perioperative, perianesthesia and gastroenterology nursing care are provided to patients of all ages who are having operative and endoscopic procedures or treatments, eye laser procedures, and who will receive general anesthesia, moderate sedation and various pain management procedures.
Our Perioperative Center is designed with special sensitivity to our patients’ convenience and privacy needs. Beginning with arrival, patients will appreciate the convenience of the dedicated entrance and the canopied drop-off area. Accompanying family members will find comfort in the large waiting area, including a coffee shop and playroom for children. Once brought into the clinical area, patients will enjoy the privacy and comfort of the bright and cheerful pre- and post-procedure rooms. To heighten comfort and diminish anxiety, rooms include a television for each patient. A dedicated pediatric recovery room allows loved ones the space and privacy needed to meet the unique comfort needs of children.
Preadmission testing is located on the ground floor of the new Center, near the entrance for easy access. Lab work and preparatory discussions help our patients properly prepare for both inpatient and outpatient procedures. Preadmission testing may be done on the following days and times:
Monday and Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
