Kent Hospital’s Ambulatory Surgery Center
Welcome to Kent Hospital’s Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC). We are proud to provide you, our valued patients, with a new, unique and truly special outpatient surgical experience that you won’t find anywhere else in Rhode Island. Our new surgery center combines an exceptional outpatient experience with new, specially designed space, state-of-the-art equipment and, right next door, the 24-hour support of our full-service hospital. The result is unparalleled ease of access, comfort and peace of mind for those who need our services.
But there is more that makes this surgery center impressive and unique. By involving our physicians in the design and construction process of the surgery center, and by committing to work with our physicians to manage the surgery center going forward, Kent Hospital has built into the facility a culture and an expectation of continuous quality improvement, safety and efficiency.
The ASC offers a team of board-certified physicians working in the most advanced facility of its kind in the region. The center offers five sub-specialty services including:
- Outpatient surgery
The comfortable waiting area offers free wi-fi, a café, and monitors with which friends and family can confidentially track a patient's progress throughout their stay.
Your Surgical Experience
We have gone to great lengths in order to provide physicians and patients with an optimal environment in which to achieve the best possible outcomes, while maximizing safety and comfort. With 28 oversized pre- and post-operative bays, the center offers patients spacious yet private surroundings in which to prepare for, and recover from, their surgery or other minor procedures. The comfortable waiting area offers free Wi-Fi, a café, and monitors with which friends and family can confidentially track a patient’s progress throughout their stay.
The surgery center is equipped with eight surgical suites—five expansive and three smaller rooms designed specifically for endoscopic technology and interventional spine procedures. Each surgical suite is equipped with and managed from a main console that allows a single member of the surgical team to control various features of the room, including access to and the display of imaging data. The rooms are also equipped with state-of-the-art anesthesia equipment, a video monitoring system and other technology to enhance the safety and efficiency of the center.
The spacious center core of the facility is easily accessible from every room. This “behind-the-scenes” staging area will be used to deliver specialized equipment and sterile materials to each room via modular cabinets that quickly transform a generic room into a highly specialized surgical suite. Each piece of equipment is tracked through a bar code system, which assures that physicians start each case with every single piece of equipment needed, right down to the last suture.
