UC Health celebrated the opening of its new surgical department expansion through a ceremonial ribbon cutting today.
This expansion marks a major milestone in the Clifton Campus Revitalization Project, which is transforming the physical facilities of the Clifton medical campus to reflect the world-class care offered by its highly skilled teams who provide lifesaving care every day. A new emergency department space is also set to open later this year as part of the largest project in the health system’s history.
The new surgical department includes 13 brand new preoperative exam rooms, eight state-of-the-art operating rooms and 12 top-tier post-anesthesia care unit pods. These improvements will add operating room capacity while improving the capabilities and readiness of UC Medical Center. The first procedures in this new space will take place in March.
