Our Surgery Center

Midwest Center for Day Surgery, a freestanding ambulatory surgery facility located on the campus of Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital, is a joint-venture between Advocate Network Services (an affiliate of Advocate Health Care) and a group of surgeon investors. Midwest Center began providing outpatient surgical services on October 29, 1985.

Midwest Center originally opened with three operating rooms. In 1986 a fourth operating room was opened; major remodeling was accomplished tin 1989 to provide five completely private and individual pre-op rooms; in 1990 a minor procedure room was approved for use; in 1996 a major construction program was undertaken which added a fifth operating room and additional support space; and construction accomplished in 2011 updated the entire facility, including the operating rooms, and adding all new furnishings in the waiting room, recovery areas and staff lounge.

The Medical Staff has grown from 20 surgeons at its inception to a present staff of 100 surgeons, physicians, and podiatrists. The surgical specialties represented by the Medical Staff include anesthesiology/pain management, otolaryngology, gastroenterology, general surgery, gynecology, orthopedics, ophthalmology, plastic surgery, podiatry and urology. Anesthesia services are provided by the group of anesthesiologists affiliated with Good Samaritan Hospital and two anesthesiologists who work solely at MCDS. All work at MCDS as independent contractors. The Center has a transfer agreement with Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital to accommodate patients who require overnight observation.
