At HSHS St. John's Hospital the entire surgery center is on one floor to allow for better communication and collaboration among all members of the patient's care team. Our private pre-operative rooms help reduce anxiety and improve comfort. The separate kid-friendly pediatric surgery area puts young patients and their families at ease.

When coming to the hospital surgery patients and their families are encouraged to park in the Mason Street Parking Ramp or free valet parking is available.

The check-in process begins on the 2nd Floor of St. John's Pavilion. Patients are then taken to a private room to prepare for surgery.

Our family lounges provide a comforting and private space for family and friends near their loved one's procedure area where patient navigators help keep families updated and informed. 

EASE app

HSHS St. John’s Hospital is using the EASE app to send real-time updates, photos and videos to family members and friends while their loved one is in surgery. EASE is a one-of-a-kind mobile messaging app that is HIPAA compliant. It is available in both the Google Play and the iTunes App Store. 

Patients identify who should receive the updates and a code is then provided to those individuals so they can receive the updates after downloading the app. These individuals do not have to be within the hospital walls to receive updates.
