Tucson Medical Center cut the ribbon for a newly expanded operating suite for the Joel M. Childers, M.D., Women’s Surgery Center featuring the latest technology and improved workflow.

As of Monday, women coming to TMC for gynecological surgery will be cared for in the upgraded operating rooms, with dedicated waiting areas for patients and families.

The former women’s surgical suites are being revamped to continue to serve Labor & Delivery for cesarean sections.

The work has been funded through the current capital campaign, Making HerStory, the TMC Foundation’s current effort to raise $12.5 million to help centralize TMC’s Women’s Services, which have been spread throughout different areas of the hospital. Consolidating resources and creating a dedicated entry point for services will increase efficiency, enhance privacy and improve quality outcomes.
