Everything You Need is Under One Roof
The 15,000 square foot Parker Center houses a free-standing surgical center, certified by the AAAASF, and Medicare. Your consultation, pre and post operative appointments, and surgery all take place with your confidentiality and safety as a priority. Our adjacent medi spa serves as a private place to facilitate recovery after surgery and receive manual lymphatic drainage massage and camouflage cosmetics to help you get back to your active lifestyle as quickly as possible.
Our AAAASF Certified Surgery Center, Surgiplex
Surgical procedures at the Parker Center are performed in Surgiplex, a modern ambulatory surgical facility designed with safety and comfort in mind. Surgiplex has been certified by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF) and by Medicare. The 2,300-square-foot facility duplicates the safety of a hospital in a more relaxed, private atmosphere.
Patient safety is foremost in the design of Surgiplex. It features a dedicated air-filtration system, piped-in anesthesia gas, and an emergency generator to provide electricity in the event of a power failure. Its operating room lights, procedure table, anesthesia, monitoring equipment, and other safety machinery are state-of-the-art.
Our anesthesiologists are all board certified medical doctors and members of the attending staff at Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern, New York. The nursing staff includes six registered nurses specifically trained in plastic surgery patient care. A certified medical technician is also on hand.
