Morristown Medical Center: The Patient Experience
Morristown Medical Center
Your arrival time is individually assigned based on your preoperative needs. It is important to arrive on time to ensure enough time for preparation.
Morristown Medical Center (main hospital) – for same-day surgery and some ambulatory surgery patients
The Surgical Access Unit (SAU) is the surgical preparation area at Morristown Medical Center (main hospital). You will be instructed when to arrive either by your nurse in the Pre-Procedure Evaluation Center during the preoperative (pre-op) testing, or by a member of our SAU nursing staff via telephone, the day before your surgery.
Entering Morristown Medical Center's campus from Madison Avenue, turn left before the main circle (in front of the hospital entrance doors), and go 3/4 of the way around the circle. Make a right on Williams Way. Go to the bottom of the hill (on Williams Way) and turn right. The Carol G. Simon Cancer Center entrance is on the right. Pull up to the Carol G. Simon Cancer Center car loop, where valet parking attendants are available to park your car.
Enter the doors of the cancer center, turn left and take the elevators to level "D." Exiting the elevators, the registration desks for surgery will be on your left.
Morristown Medical Ambulatory Surgery Center – for some ambulatory surgery patients
You will be asked to arrive at the Center 90 minutes to two hours prior to your scheduled surgery time. This will be reviewed with you during a preoperative phone call with our nursing staff a day or two before your surgery.
Morristown Medical Ambulatory Surgery Center is located at 111 Madison Avenue, across the street from Morristown Medical Center. Parking is available at the building. When you enter the building, go to the second floor. You will be greeted by a receptionist and proceed to our registrar, who will process the paperwork required for your surgical procedure.
If you are having ambulatory surgery and you're not sure which location you should go to, check with your doctor.
