Medical advances in recent years mean that many of the surgical procedures that used to require overnight stays in a hospital can now be performed safely on an outpatient basis.
The Western Avenue Day Surgery Center is an outpatient surgery facility affiliated with Plastic & Hand Surgical Associates and located on-site. It was one of Maine’s first day surgery facilities, opening in 1987.
Experienced RNs and a physician assistant staff two full-scale operating rooms. An anesthesiologist from Spectrum Medical Group, the physician group that provides anesthesia at Maine Medical Center, provides anesthesia care for our patients.
The Western Avenue Day Surgery Center is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc., and by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. It is also Medicare-certified and licensed by the State of Maine. Our facility meets the same state and federal requirements as hospital-based outpatient surgery units. We provide our patients with safe, individualized surgical care in a comfortable, efficient and private setting. The surgery center is owned and operated by Drs. White, Vaughan, Maddali, Kutz and Kirkham.
