Midtown Surgical Center is made up of a team of highly experienced administrators, nurses, technicians, and business office staff. Our staff comes from a wide variety of backgrounds and has come together to create our great patient care team.

Who You'll Meet When You Visit Us

Our goal is to provide the best patient care possible, and our staff members work together through the entire visit to reach this goal. When patients come to Midtown, they are greeted by one of our Business Office staff members who will check the patient in. After registration is complete, the patient is escorted to the pre-op area and where they are prepped for their procedure by our pre-op staff. The patient then goes to the appropriate area for their procedure. After the procedure is over, the patient is taken to the recovery area. When the patient is stable and is feeling as comfortable as possible, they are discharged home.

Skilled, Experienced Staff

The staff in the GI lab is made up of highly experienced GI nurses. The Operating Room is staffed with a combination of highly skilled OR nurses and Certified Scrub Techs. Our staff in the PACU (Post Anesthesia Care Unit) is made up of all Registered Nurses with many years of combined experience. All of our nurses are PALS and ACLS certified.
