Meeting the Demand for Outpatient Surgery

Maine Medical Center

Designed around the comfort of patients requiring surgeries that do not require an overnight stay, this freestanding, 59,000-SF outpatient surgical center is set on a remote campus and includes:

  • 10 operating rooms
  • 31 pre- and post-op rooms
  • Central sterile and reprocessing
  • Spacious, welcoming lobby and waiting area with access to an exterior “healing garden”
  • Family lounge
  • Cafe with indoor and outdoor seating

Increasing the Maine Medical Center’s outpatient surgery capacity from 26 to 31 rooms, the facility is meeting the region’s increased demand for outpatient surgery. The Surgery Center opened its doors to the public in August 2007.
