Last week, we introduced you to Gillette’s spacious new surgical suite in St. Paul. And this week, we couldn’t resist sharing a sneak-peek inside the beautiful new facility. We are pleased to report that our new facility is already up-and-running for our physicians, nurses, and patient families.

Here is the pre-anesthesia area, where clinical staff prepare patients for their surgeries.  The soothing, nature-themed imagery provides a calming environment for families.

A ceiling of sky and clouds greets patients as they make their way from pre-anesthesia to our operating rooms.

The corridor leading to our operating room mimics the nature theme seen earlier in the pre-anesthesia area.

And finally, one of our seven new state-of-the-art operating rooms. The rooms are spacious enough to accommodate the complex procedures – often involving more than one surgeon – that children with disabilities often need.

Thanks again to the Gillette staff, supporters, and families who helped us welcome the new space last week.
