Adirondack Health will cut ribbon on new surgery unit

SARANAC LAKE — Adirondack Health invites the public to a celebration of its new Ambulatory Surgery Unit at Adirondack Medical Center.

The event runs from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21. Attendees should meet in the main lobby at Adirondack Medical Center, 2233 state Route 86, Saranac Lake.

The ASU is where patients get surgery that doesn’t require an overnight stay. The new ASU is in renovated space where the hospital’s operating rooms used to be. Construction on the space is nearing completion, and the space will soon be open to patients.

Those who attend the event will get a chance to tour the new ASU space before most of the equipment is loaded in, as well as visit the new MRI suite and take a virtual tour of the hospital’s new operating rooms.

“It’s rare for visitors to be able to tour an ASU, so it’s exciting that we’re able to share them with the public before they are sanitized for patient care,” said Hannah Hanford, executive director of the Adirondack Health Foundation. “We’re so grateful to our incredibly generous donors for making this project possible and we look forward to sharing this moment with them.”

Complimentary child care will be available on site. Light refreshments will be served.

Anyone who wishes to attend should RSVP to Meg Stanton at 518-897-2597 or mastanton@adirondackhealth.org.
