Ambulatory Care

alt text

Ambulatory care is provided in 10 operating rooms within Yale-New Haven Hospital. The facility includes a preoperative area, 10 operating room suites, 4 block areas, and 13 PACU bays. The patient population generally excludes patients less than 13 years of age and/or with an ASA classification of IV. Anesthesiologists, along with Certified Registered Nurse Anesthesiologists (CRNAs) and anesthesiology residents, care here for out-patients who are discharged immediately after their surgery

This care, which spares patients the disruption of an overnight hospitalization, is designed to make the surgical experience as convenient and as safe as possible for patients while maximizing efficiency for surgeons. Our practice has a high-volume of routine cases as well as a significant number of sicker patients. Our emphasis on the doctor-patient relationship has resulted in very high patient satisfaction ratings. We also support our busy regional anesthesia practice by working with a dedicated anesthesia team trained in regional anesthesiology.
