Staff at Mercy Hospital Pre-Surgical Testing Suite Ribbon Cutting

This week, Catholic Health’s Mercy Hospital (Rockville Centre, NY) celebrated the unveiling of its new Pre-Surgical Testing (PST) suite with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The state-of-the-art 3,300-square-foot space will boost overall patient experience and enhance health equity by offering improved access in a modern space. Prior to its move to the Catholic Health Ambulatory building, located adjacent to the hospital, PST was housed inside the main hospital building in a 1,400-square-foot space.

“I’m proud to say that this new space, which more than doubled in size, is full of opportunity. It will not only allow us to elevate our patient experience but meet the surgical demands deemed necessary by our community—all while providing a new, convenient, and modern location,” said Joseph Manopella, president of Mercy Hospital.

The new PST suite represents a $2.5 million investment that was supported in part by a $1 million grant from the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation and funds from the Friends of Mercy Hospital. It features eight spacious exam rooms, a dedicated room designed with bariatric patients in mind, a conveniently located X-ray room, new equipment, upgraded technology, improved workflow and modern upgrades throughout.

“The future is bright for Mercy Hospital. This project represents the culmination of two years of meticulous planning and design while keeping our patient's needs at the forefront. I’m very excited to be celebrating this next milestone and expanding access to care to those in our community,” said Ihab Ibrahim, chief operating officer at Mercy Hospital.

The new PST suite is located in Suite 306 in Catholic Health’s Ambulatory building, located just steps from the main hospital building. The new location provides ample parking, increased wayfinding and enhanced access from a location standpoint.

“The new space is a welcome upgrade for our patients and our PST staff, “said Dannielle Henry, nurse manager for Mercy’s ambulatory surgery service. I am confident that the space—which is now larger, brighter and modern—will enhance our ability to continue to deliver high-quality, compassionate care. I’m excited for our future."
