As part of its commitment to restoring local people’s health and returning them to their own homes as soon as their good health allows, Glens Falls Hospital, in 1976, opened the first certified day surgery unit in New York State.
Today, our Day Surgery Center is the setting for an ever-growing array of advanced surgical procedures which allow the patient to return home on the day of their procedure.
The Day Surgery Center has eight operating rooms, with specific rooms dedicated to and equipped especially for eye care, gynecology and ear, nose and throat procedures. In addition, the Center includes both primary and secondary recovery rooms and a specially designed recovery room exclusively for pediatric patients.
Our Center is located apart from, but immediately adjacent to, our Inpatient Surgery Center, ensuring the availability of a broad diversity of acute care services at virtually a moment’s notice, if needed.
