Operating Facilities

The main operating room area at Riley Hospital consists of a three-pod pre/post anesthesia area, 16 large, modern operating rooms with state of the art technology, two Interventional Radiology suites, and two Cardiac Cath Lab suites.

The Riley Outpatient Center includes a six-room Operating Suite with an associated Day Surgery and PACU area.  It is physically connected to the main hospital.
