Surgery Services at Palos
The Palos Health provides a wide range of surgical services to its referring physicians and their patients and the amenities continue to expand.
Quality Surgical Care
The 14 state-of-the-art operating suites at Palos Hospital house all the necessary equipment to perform a variety of inpatient and outpatient procedures and feature advanced integrated technologies. The surgical area also includes four endoscopy suites, a minor surgery room and an interventional radiology suite known as the Hybrid Room because it offers CT scan and ultrasound technologies within a surgical suite.
The Hybrid Room provides the latest technology in terms of imaging capabilities for patients requiring interventional radiological, vascular, cardiac and orthopaedic procedures. The unique dual-procedure operating suite is equipped to accommodate both open and closed surgical procedures.
Two of the operating suites at Palos also are home to robotic-assisted surgical systems. The surgical robot makes it possible for surgeons to work in confined spaces in the body and perform an entire procedure through minimally invasive techniques, potentially shortening the length of stay for a patient and reducing recovery time. Patients also may experience less scarring and a lower risk for complications.
Your Journey Begins in the Center for Short Stay Care
The Center for Short Stay Care (CSSC) is an innovative concept in hospital care. The CSSC provides a more efficient, comfortable and seamless model of care for both patients and their families. The facility provides a single point of entry for all patients undergoing any invasive procedure, whether it's a surgical, interventional radiology or endoscopy procedure.
Tracking technology and a nurse liaison guide families waiting for their loved ones through the entire process keeping them updated on an ongoing basis. Inpatients and outpatients also receive pre-procedure care within this area. After time in recovery, inpatients return to their private room to continue healing and outpatients return to the CSSC to prepare to go home through a private discharge door.
In a fast-paced and technologically advanced environment, the CSSC provides a calm and accommodating atmosphere which is more conducive to the healing process.
