The new surgery family waiting room will be open for use mid-March of this year. The 18 post-anesthesia care units will be operational at the end of March. In late April or early May, the operating rooms will be functioning. The hybrid operating room gives surgeons the ability to perform traditional, open surgery and minimally invasive, endovascular procedures on the same patient, at the same time. The new oxygen farm will be available by February 2016, at the project’s completion.

The third floor of the main hospital continues to be restricted to only colleagues and physicians working with a surgery patient.
