A behind the scenes look at our new Surgery Center
I’ll never forget when my brother had his tonsils taken out. As his little sister, I remember the green tile, the adult patients rolling by and being grossed out when he brought his tonsils home in a jar!
Thankfully, all of that has changed. I just visited our brand new outpatient surgery center in Westerville and it’s a wow! Not a green tile in sight – the building is bright, cheerful and every aspect has been designed to distract, delight and relax children – and only children! Not an adult patient in sight either and the facility has been designed so that patients going into surgery never cross paths with a child leaving surgery.
Behind the scenes every member of the team comes from the main hospital campus – bringing that level of pediatric expertise to this community-based center. It’s a special place.
You have to check out this great virtual tour. Even if your child has never had surgery it’s something great to show them to alleviate anxieties and demystify the experience.
Let me know what you think and I’d love to hear from anyone who has already experienced the new surgery center with their children.
