New York, NY (May 2012) -- As part of The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary’s Surgical Suite Initiative, overall a $13 million renovation and expansion of operating room facilities, a new PACU was opened for the recovery of post-anesthesia patients. It is a new extension onto the North (main hospital) Building, and encompasses 18 individual recovery bays – 14 for adults, 4 for pediatric patients -- with highest tech vital signs monitoring systems for all. The individual pediatric bays already make the surgical experience more child- and family-friendly, with further enhancements to come. The next phase will turn the previous PACU into four private pediatric rooms.
