A Preview of the New Witting Surgical Center at Crouse Hospital


Witting Surgical CenterWorkers and staff are putting the finishing touches on Crouse Hospital's new 90,000 square-foot Witting Surgical Center. Jill Hauswirth, director of inpatient surgical services, and Jeff Tetrault, director of engineering, preview the new facility, which replaces the hospital's existing 35 year-old inpatient operating room facility. Phase 1 of the $50 million project is complete, with 11 new operating rooms opening for cases in early December. Three additional operating rooms will be completed in late 2011.


The new, state-of-the-art facility features:

  • larger operating rooms that can accommodate the increasing space needs brought on by complex surgeries and continuous technological advances in surgical care;
  • ample room for new and expanded programs in specialty areas such as orthopedics, robotics, vascular surgery and neurosurgery;
  • waiting areas that will provide guests with the comfort and amenities expected in healthcare facilities today;
  • a facility designed to enhance Crouse Hospital's patient safety and HIPAA efforts;
  • a number of green infrastructure features including high-efficiency motors, motion detectors for lighting, high-efficiency lighting and low consumption plumbing systems;
  • room for the addition of outpatient operating rooms and the future expansion of the hospital's Emergency Department.
