Our suburban Ambulatory Surgery Centers allow families access to the services of renowned Children's Hospital surgeons without a trip to the city. Staff at these ambulatory sites are all CHOP employees, and each Center provides outpatient general and specialty surgical services to children of all ages.
Narrator: At the Children's Hospital Surgery Center they take care of Daniel's mom and dad too.
Karen B. Zur, MD: Family-centered care and safety of the children is a priority at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. And we really make sure to listen to our families.
Douglas A. Canning, MD: Because at the end of the day, we don't get to help their child until we connect with the parents.
Ellen C Jantzen, MD: Care of the family impacts how the patient does, and we all believe that at Children's Hospital.
George Karpovich, RN: To have the number one children's hospital within distance to take your child to. We don't realize how lucky we are.
William P. Potsic, MD: We are fortunate if you ever had to use it. And you're also fortunate if you've never had to use it. Because it's an incredible facility that's there if you need it, when you need it.
George Karpovich, RN: Every single day I walk into the Wood Building downtown and feel proud to walk into CHOP, and when I see these glimmering specialty care centers, I feel proud to walk into them.
Ellen C Jantzen, MD: We have the same goals, which is to take the best care we can of the patients and their families.
George Karpovich, RN: It's the very pinnacle of care for children and, yes, I think it's one of the wonderful things about being in Philadelphia. It's one of the wonderful things about being on the East Coast. It's one of the wonderful things about being in this country. We have the ability to provide care that far surpasses anything that I could ever dream of.
William P. Potsic, MD: We're all very pleased and honored and proud to be part of the CHOP family.
Karen B. Zur, MD: It's wonderful to be able to provide this level of service to our patients in the ambulatory centers.
Narrator: Now Daniel's ear is all fixed, and he gets to go home. That was a really good operation.
