  • In mid-October, steel beams were delivered to the site of Winthrop's $5.5 million Ambulatory Surgery Unit expansion. The additional four operating rooms and related facilities will be of immense value to the community. The original Ambulatory Surgery Unit opened in May, l991.


    An architectural rendering of the expansion of the Ambulatory Surgery Unit at Winthrop provides an overview of the enlarged facility.

    In progress since August, the construction of Winthrop’s expanded Ambulatory Surgery Unit has made impressive headway. Four additional Ambulatory Surgery Operating Rooms and an expanded recovery area are being added. The new unit will be connected to the existing Ambulatory Surgery Unit, scheduled for renovation as part of a $5.5 million construction project. A new walkway entry to the Hospital will improve patient flow. Physician and staff lounges are to be created in the lower level. LIPA will add new electrical service, to provide Winthrop with enhanced power.

    “The addition of the four new Ambulatory Surgery Operating Rooms will facilitate the ease of surgical scheduling,” noted Diane Bendelier, RN, C-PAN, Administrative Director of Perioperative Services at Winthrop.
