On Monday, January 14th, our department is opening the Essex Crossing ambulatory surgery center. Essex Crossing consists of four operating rooms. We are staffing two operating rooms immediately and will staff the remaining two on July 1st. In total, we will have four ambulatory OR’s at Essex Crossing and six at our 38th Street ASC location. This is in addition to the OR’s at the NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital, and those at Tisch/Kimmel. In order to accommodate this growth, we are expanding the roles of the physician leadership.
