Northside Midtown Surgery Center
As Atlanta’s most preferred hospital, Northside Hospital is committed to continually seeking opportunities for enhancing, expanding, and improving the care provided to the greater Atlanta community. Northside’s new Midtown Surgery Center is a perfect example of this commitment in practice.
Clinical Manager, Carla K. has played a key role in helping this state-of-the-art facility become a working reality. As a surgical nurse for over 11 years, Carla has helped create a surgery center that is not just brand new, but next-generation, where every single operating room runs at 100% efficiency.
It was important for Northside to incorporate the vision of an outstanding surgical nurse in the design and development of the Center. Carla says, “Having a nurse be part of the project management of this location has made a big difference. I’m focused on making it better for the patients, the staff, and the surgeons. Everything has been 100% thought through. From where the computer is located, to the stretchers, to how to make things better for the employees that come here.”
Elevating Your Experience
Optimizing the employee experience was a key objective in creating the Surgery Center, down to every detail. As Carla explains, “One thing that I love is our break room and the lounge area. It has a beautiful view of the whole Midtown location. Every single one of the boards has the same setting. In the nursing world, that is something we dream about. The pre-op areas have also been planned accordingly so that the OR nurses are able to do everything from the bedside.”
Above all, Carla is passionate about bringing leading-edge surgical care right to the community. “The thing that makes me the most excited about this new outpatient facility is the location,” says Carla. “We’re in the middle, the heart of Midtown.”
The Midtown Surgery Center will provide a wide range of surgical services to meet the unique needs of this diverse and dynamic community. This will include sports medicine, plastics, general and more. Northside is focused on making sure the Midtown Surgery Center becomes an integral part of the community where everyone is part of the Northside family.
With a commitment to delivering only the finest in surgical services, the Midtown Surgery Center is building a team of exceptional clinical and support professionals. This includes OR nurses, pre-op nurses, PACU nurses, and ER nurses as well as surgical techs, patient care techs, support techs, secretaries, and schedulers.
