The John C. Lincoln North Mountain Outpatient Surgery Center opened on Nov. 12 in the new medical office building adjacent to John C. Lincoln North Mountain Hospital.
Built to expand the same-day surgery capabilities of John C. Lincoln physicians, the John C. Lincoln North Mountain Outpatient Surgery Center is located at 9250 N. Third St., Suite 1001, Phoenix.
The outpatient surgery center will expand the capabilities of John C. Lincoln physicians to provide a variety of same-day surgeries for orthopedics, plastic surgery, urology, podiatry, sinus procedures, pain management and more.
"Going to a hospital, even to visit someone else, tends to create anxiety for adults and children," said Shawn B. Mathews, MD, board-certified interventional ear, nose and throat physician at Valley Ear, Nose & Throat Surgeons, also located at the new medical building and with privileges at John C. Lincoln Hospitals.
"For children, especially, an outpatient surgery center can be calmer. It does not look like a traditional hospital setting, even though we have all of the same technology," he said. "You won't hear overhead pages and see bustling emergency activity. With the smaller setting as well, nurses have more time to spend with children."
The John C. Lincoln North Mountain Outpatient Surgery Center is located at 9250 N. Third St., Suite 1001, Phoenix. Hours are 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and the center is closed on all major holidays. The center's number is 602-870-6335. Scheduling also can be done through John C. Lincoln's central scheduling number at 623-434-6226.
The other suites at North Mountain Integrated Medical Services building are the new home of specialized and family practice offices and medical imaging.
