Sanford Health has opened a new state-of-the-art same day surgery center in downtown Bismarck, North Dakota. The Sanford Broadway Same Day Surgery Center, located at 715 E. Broadway Ave., will provide a space for patients to receive surgery and return home the same day.
“We are excited to open a surgery center in the heart of downtown Bismarck that will meet the surgical needs of our community,” said Jacqueline Farland, executive director of surgical services. “The new surgery center will provide additional access to same day surgical care to our community, reducing hospitalization and increasing patient convenience.”
Understanding same day surgery
Same day surgery is an outpatient procedure, meaning you go in for the surgery, and once you wake from anesthesia and are awake and alert, if no signs of problems are, you can continue your recovery at home. Most same day surgery procedures are minor or routine and can be performed relatively quickly. They are low risk, require a small incision or no external incision, and do not require extended recoveries under constant medical supervision.
As these surgeries do not require a hospital stay, there are many benefits to having these procedures done in a same day surgery center.
Designed around convenience, accessibility, and easier recovery
The Sanford Broadway Same Day Surgery Center is a highly regulated, freestanding surgical facility equipped and staffed to handle same day outpatient surgeries and preventive procedures that would otherwise be performed in a hospital setting.
Here, adult and pediatric patients can receive expert preoperative, surgical and recovery care all under one roof. Surgeons will perform procedures that allow the patient to recover at home once anesthesia has worn off and the patient is able to care for themselves with minimal assistance.
Latest technology, techniques, and a team of surgical experts
The Sanford Broadway Surgery Center is over 22,000 square feet and includes 18 preoperative and recovery care rooms and six surgical suites. Located on the northwest corner of Seventh Street and Broadway Avenue across from the Sanford Medical Center in Bismarck, the Sanford Broadway Same Day Surgery Center is part of Sanford’s long-term investment in improving patient access to support the needs of our growing central and western North Dakota communities.
A wide variety of procedures will be performed at the same day surgery center, including treatments for chronic conditions and minor procedures that don’t require hospitalization afterward.
The following specialties will be offered as same day surgical services:
- Ear, nose and throat
- General surgery
- Orthopedic surgery
- Pediatric surgery
- Plastic surgery
The existing surgical services department within the Sanford Seventh & Rosser Clinic will continue being used for inpatient and outpatient surgeries once the surgery center is open for patients.
