Welcome to The PACE Center

PACE provides friendly access to perioperative services where, anesthesiologists, advanced level providers and nurses review and optimize patients for surgery. In addition to performing history and physical examinations and appropriate laboratory testing, documentation is collected from outside hospitals and the information integrated into the Electronic Medical Record, Cerner Inc, so that it is readily available on day of surgery.

Some 30–40 patients are reviewed daily, Monday through Friday, on 45 minute appointments, between 7am until 5:30 pm. Senior Anesthesiology Residents spend four weeks and junior residents spend one week in PACE, directly supported by Anesthesiology Faculty, earning the principles of cost-effective, evidence based pre-operative evaluation.
