The 26 Operating Rooms at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) function 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Nineteen of the OR's are built into a racetrack design.
All twenty-six rooms are available for elective bookings. There is also a surgical suite for Minor procedures located in the Post Anesthesia Care Unit. Several Clinic areas are now doing ambulatory outpatient minor surgeries in this room.
Any procedure can be done in any room. We do both inpatient and outpatient surgeries with a protocol that encourages children and outpatients before inpatients unless medical necessity mandates otherwise.
The role of the perioperative nurse / operating room nurse (OR RN) is to provide care for patients before, during, and after surgery or surgical procedures. The OR nurse / OR RN also serves as patient educator, circulating nurse and/or scrub nurse, and potentially RN first assistant or operating room director with additional training. Circulating OR nurses work within the operating suite but outside of the sterile field; scrub OR nurses handle and prepare operating instruments and equipment within the sterile field. Perioperative nurses work in every type of healthcare facility, including hospitals, ambulatory or outpatient surgery centers, and physician offices.

About the Facility
An affiliate of the Geisel Medical School of Dartmouth, this medical center offers a wide array of world-class medical services to residents of Vermont and New Hampshire. The hospital has been awarded a wealth of awards since its inception, including the Baby-Friendly designation, the National Cancer Institute designation and Magnet status (being the first medical center in New Hampshire to have garnished the distinction). Recently, the hospital was named one of the nation's best by U.S. News and Report, marking the ninth time since 1995 that it has earned the honor.
Lebanon is located in idyllic Grafton County, just south of Hanover. The town features the small-town living charms that have won the hearts of countless New Hampshire and Vermont residents. Lebanon's seasonal farmers market is a major draw as the area has a wealth of artisanal farms and crafts producers. The Lebanon Opera House in City Hall puts on seasonal operas, while the Salt Hill Pub showcases local rock and folk musicians. Lebanon is also the home of Dartmouth Medical School.
