The Touro Ambulatory Surgery Center (TASC) is described by a former patient as “the way surgery should be”. TASC strives to provide excellent care, comfort and convenience for every patient. As a part of Touro Infirmary, TASC shares the hospital’s commitment to delivering excellent healthcare.
TASC’s dedicated staff of nurses, anesthetists, and surgical and radiological technicians works closely with surgeons, anesthesiologist and pathologists, all of whom meet the highest ethical and professional standards. The newly renovated facility makes pre-admission testing easy and convenient for patients. The center features three major operating rooms, including a diagnostic urology suite and a seven bed recovery room.
