St. Vincent’s Operating Rooms and ICU
St. Vincent’s state-of-the-art operating rooms (ORs) consolidate all major pre-and post-operative procedure areas. The ORs include eight pre-operative bays, 10 operating suites, and 12 post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) beds. The suite, incorporating the latest technology and design standards, also includes an endoscopy system for minimally invasive surgery, ample space, advanced lighting and modular storage built-ins.
Both the main OR and the Ambulatory Surgery Center, where same-day procedures are performed, feature a tracking system that improves communications between staff and family members, part of St. Vincent’s patient and family-centered approach to care.
Following surgery, the patient is typically moved to our Intensive Care Unit, or (ICU) for close monitoring.
Robot & Hybrid OR technology
St. Vincent’s is equipped with the most advanced model of robotic technology, the da Vinci® Robot SI System. We are also equipped with the Hybrid OR where both surgical and catheter-based vascular/cardiovascular interventions or operations are performed.

These new technologies are transforming cardiac surgery and interventions greatly contribute to the safety, comfort and outcomes for our patients.
