SUNY Downstate Bay Ridge Ambulatory Surgery Center Reopens

Facility to Offer Full Range of Ambulatory Surgery Services

BROOKLYN, N.Y. (November 18, 2019) – SUNY Downstate Bay Ridge Ambulatory Surgery Center has reopened and is once again providing comprehensive ambulatory surgery services. SUNY Downstate has not offered any services at this location since a fire caused significant damage to the facility in September of 2018.

Located on the 1st floor in the former Victory Memorial Hospital at 9036 7th Avenue in Brooklyn, SUNY Downstate at Bay Ridge is a full-service, multispecialty outpatient surgical facility that performs procedures that do not require an overnight hospital stay. The facility has been completely renovated, and now features a comfortable, attractive, and professional environment for both patients and physicians, along with a comfortable waiting room for patients' families.

SUNY Downstate at Bay Ridge Ambulatory Surgery Center features seven state-of-the-art operating suites with the capability to perform the vast majority of outpatient surgeries for both adult and pediatric patients. The facility is staffed by the full range of healthcare professions needed to provide the best possible care, including surgeons, anesthesiologists, perioperative nurses and other ancillary staff.

The center is open from 6 AM until 6 PM, Monday through Friday, and is fully staffed until all post-operative patients are safely and comfortably discharged.

LOCATION:

We are located at 9036 7th Ave, Brooklyn NY, across from the Dyker Heights Golf Club at the former Victory Memorial Hospital Site
