The operating rooms of the cancer hospital provide world-class care to both inpatient and outpatient oncology surgical patients. The operating room (OR) unit now consists of eight rooms with the hospital expansion completion in fall 2011. Our OR utilizes some of the most advanced surgical techniques, equipment, and materials available for general surgery, urology, plastics, gynecology oncology, otolaryngology, neurosurgery, and orthopedic surgical services.
Our team comprises RNs, surgical technicians, health care assistants and anesthesia technicians. In cooperation with our renowned team of surgeons, we provide excellent care to approximately 250 patients each month. We have an OR internship program for RNs, with or without experience, who are interested in pursuing surgical nursing. This internship program incorporates skills and information not usually included in nursing school programs to prepare individuals for the exciting and challenging role of an OR nurse.
