Wayne UNC Health Care to Open First Phase of New State-of-the-Art Surgery Center

Wayne UNC Health Care will open the first phase of its new, state-of-the-art Surgery Center May 21, adding 40,000-square-feet to its existing center.

Designed with patients in mind, the new center will feature advanced operating room technology and innovative universal rooms for both pre- and post-surgical care. When all phases of the Surgery Center project are complete, it will include over 100,000 square feet. The space was designed with the experience in mind, eliminating many of the steps patients and visitors must currently take to various areas of the hospital when coming for surgery or to visit a loved one in surgery.

Large and spacious, our new operating rooms provide our expert team access to state-of-the-art image guidance. All operating rooms in the new facility will feature the most advanced Integrated Digital Surgical Suites (IDSS) technology. The new, expanded Surgery Center will give patients access to the latest in surgical technology and position Wayne UNC to bring greater technologies and capabilities online in the future.

“Wayne UNC’s leadership, physicians and teammates have put a tremendous amount of thought and effort into planning this project, and we believe it will give us the ability to provide the advanced level of care our patients deserve,” said Dr. Anthony Bruno, Wayne UNC Chief Medical Officer.

Janie Jaberg, President & CEO, said Wayne UNC recognizes its Mission to provide comprehensive, quality care to families in Wayne and surrounding counties. “This project has been a collaborative effort of our Board of Directors, medical staff, leadership, teammates and community partners including TA Loving. This was truly a visionary project by our Board to help Wayne UNC improve the experience for surgical patients, as well as, position the hospital to offer a higher level of care. It is our Mission to offer high-quality care close to home for our residents.”

The project is expected to be complete in mid-2019.
