Fully Integrated Operating Rooms
Computer monitors providing high-definition images from inside the body have transformed Erlanger East Surgical Center's operating rooms into technological wonders. Digital technology makes more minimally-invasive procedures available - meaning smaller incisions, less blood loss, lower risk of infection, faster recoveries and improved clinical outcomes - all benefits to you as a patient.
The digital OR's at East are linked to monitors at the Erlanger Baroness Campus surgical facilities and pathology department, providing real-time surgical consultation and educational opportunities.
The streamlined efficiency of the digital OR's allows the dedicated East staff to concentrate fully on the patient instead of adjusting and moving equipment. Less clutter means faster turn-around times and more ease in meeting surgical schedules. Again, your safety and convenience are top priority.
Overnight Surgical Patients
As Erlanger East Campus's surgical capabilities expand, more inpatient procedures requiring at least an overnight stay are being performed. Initially focused on c-sections, gynecologic, general and plastic surgery patients, the Erlanger East Surgical Nursing Unit has grown to serve both male and female patients.

Staffed completely by Registered Nurses, the unit has a home-like environment complete with a family kitchen and room service available for both patients and their families.
