The surgical staff at CVPH agrees with the familiar saying that there is no minor surgical procedure when it's your procedure. They blend their extensive clinical skills and experience with compassion and concern for each patient.
There are few nicer, more complete surgical programs than what is offered at CVPH.
On the main CVPH campus the surgical department is an anchor of the second floor of the Medical Center. Pre-operative care, operating suites and post-anesthesia care are all conveniently located contiguous to one another, a huge benefit for quality, efficiency and patient privacy. The department is a combination of new construction, completed in October 2008 and remodeled facilities that opened in July 2009. Both inpatient and ambulatory procedures are performed here.
Off campus patients enjoy the Kevin J. Carroll Ambulatory Surgery Center, which is part of the CVPH Health Plaza located 1.8 miles from the main campus, conveniently located near Champlain Centres. Here ambulatory surgery and gastrological procedures are performed with maximum convenience for patients and families.
Surgical services are provided at both our main campus and at our Ambulatory Surgery Center located in the CVPH Health Plaza. If possible always Advance Register. Regardless of which location you are to receive services, always comply with your physician's instructions concerning eating, drinking, and medications.
Surgery at the Main Hospital
Your physician will share with you a time to be at the hospital. Report directly to the patient and family waiting area located on the second floor. That is all you have to do. Volunteers and our staff will take care of everything else.
Surgery at the Ambulatory Surgery Center
The Ambulatory Surgery Center is located toward the south end of the CVPH Health Plaza on Plaza Blvd. Across from Hannaford Foods. Enter into the Ambulatory Surgery Center's main lobby and report to the receptionist. That is all you have to do.
