St. David’s Austin Area Surgery Center (located within the North Austin Medical Center) is an ambulatory surgery center, providing exclusively Women’s Services, including general surgery as well as other specialty/gynecological surgical procedures.
The new surgery center occupies the ground floor tenant space in an existing 3-story building, transforming a vacant “Cold-Dark” shell into a warm, comforting environment. The completed center is approximately 14,720 square feet, containing 3 Class “A” Operating Rooms and 2 Treatment Rooms. Operating Room 3 and Treatment Room 2 will be finished out completely but may not be equipped with medical equipment as part of this project (may be equipped at later date).
The operating room portion is sterile, while the treatment suite is non-sterile and located adjacent to the Pre-Op and Recovery spaces, as well as all code required and operationally necessary spaces. Most patients will not require an overnight stay. In the event a longer recovery is warranted (23 hours or less), it can be accommodated by the surgery center in the private recovery room.
