The Operating Room
Arundel Mills Surgery Center is a medicare certified facility, this means that we meet the standards for safety and quality, set by the U.S government. There are many classes of operating rooms. The class designation determines the extent of procedures that can be safely performed. We are one of only 5 centers in the state of Maryland, that falls under the class C standards outlined by Medicare and AAASF. There are numerous other centers that meet part of the accreditation criteria for each agency, however, very few centers nationwide meet the criteria for both agencies. The class C designation is the highest level of certification possible. Centers with the class C designation are certified to perform procedures under all types of anesthesia. It is awarded to facilities after rigorous inspection, and verification of strict healthcare guidelines.
Accreditation allows for the best assurance of safety, quality and efficiency.
The class C designation by Medicare, and AAAASF includes all of the following:

Our PACU unit is fully staffed by a team of experienced RN’s and surgical staff, they continue to monitor our patients post procedure, and attend to their needs. After anesthesia, our patients are able to discuss any post op care with the surgical staff and stay in the recovery unit until they feel they are ready to fully recuperate at home.
We also have adjacent “beauty suites” provided by Spring Hill by Marriott. These newly renovated rooms are designed specifically for Arundel Mills Surgery Center clients, and feature all the amenities that a post procedure client may desire. These suites are adjacent to our center.
