May 19, 2023 – Delray Medical Center announces a procedural suite expansion project on its first-floor surgical tower, aimed at enhancing capabilities and elevating the patient experience. With a total investment of approximately $13 million, the expansion encompasses three operating rooms, private prep and recovery rooms, an advanced endoscopy suite, a designated post-anesthesia care unit (PACU), and the introduction of a third CT scanner.
This expansion project at Delray Medical Center signifies a significant leap forward in delivering exceptional surgical care, prioritizing outpatient services, and facilitating quick, minimally invasive procedures. Initially, the expanded facilities will offer services in urology, gastrointestinal (GI), and general surgery, with future plans to incorporate orthopedics. This ambulatory surgery center model is designed to streamline processes and ensure patients receive efficient, high-quality care.
“The expansion of our first-floor tower marks a milestone for Delray Medical Center and demonstrates our commitment to providing the best possible care to our patients,” said Daniel Listi, CEO of Delray Medical Center. “By investing in technology and dedicated facilities, we are enhancing the patient experience, reducing wait times, and improving surgical outcomes.”
The three new operating rooms are equipped with some of the latest advancements in surgical technology, allowing surgeons to perform procedures with unparalleled precision and efficiency. Additionally, the addition of the most advanced CT scanner available further enhances Delray Medical Center’s diagnostic capabilities, especially in cardiac imaging, ensuring accurate, timely and comprehensive diagnoses.
The expansion also emphasizes patient comfort and privacy. The private pre-operative rooms provide a tranquil environment for patients to prepare for their procedures, while the PACU ensures seamless care and monitoring following surgery. Every effort has been made to create an environment that prioritizes patient well-being and ease of access.
“We are excited to commence patient treatments in our expanded first floor tower starting May 22nd,” added Listi. “This expansion will enable us to deliver a wider range of surgical services, catering to the unique needs of each patient, and further solidify Delray Medical Center’s position as a leading healthcare institution in our community.”
