Reinventing healthcare one patient at a time

Day Surgery

Two convenient locations for day surgeries

Ellis Medicine operates Day Surgery Units at Ellis Hospital and the Ellis Health Center.

Ellis Hospital (1101 Nott Street, Schenectady)

Located on the second floor of Ellis Hospital's A wing, the Day Surgery Unit serves both surgical and cardiac catheterization patients and their families. This 18-bed unit is designed for pre-surgical and pre-discharge care of patients who do not require overnight stays. Emphasis is placed on patient and family education to prevent complications following discharge and to ensure appropriate follow-up care.

Our Day Surgery patients aren't the only ones who receive compassionate care. Our Day Surgery staff strives to take great care of families of patients, too. The Day Surgery Patient Welcome Center serves as a pleasant place for family members to wait while their loved one is undergoing surgery or recovering. The Patient Welcome Center, which has a television, aquarium and children's area, is designed to make families feel at home during their stay at Ellis. The Center is equipped with digital pagers that allow patients or family members to leave the unit while waiting or during delays.

The Patient Welcome Center is staffed Monday through Friday, from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Our staff is trained to answer your questions and help in any way possible.
