About our Surgery Facilities

Penn Presbyterian Medical Center's highly acclaimed surgical staff offers the experience, the technical knowledge and the innovation to provide you, our patients, with exemplary surgical care. Our dedication to providing new and better surgical methods has led to numerous surgical procedures performed here.

Surgery is performed in one of thirteen operating rooms, which are located in the CUPP building. Hours for the surgery unit are 7:30 am to 5:30 pm Monday through Friday. Be sure to visit Admissions, which is located on the first floor of CUPP, when you arrive for surgery.

Undergoing a surgical procedure, however, affects not only you as a patient but often your loved ones as well. We make every effort to put your family and friends at ease as they wait for the completion of your surgery. The waiting area is located on the second floor of Cupp right near the operating rooms. This proximity enables doctors and nurses to easily update your loved ones about the status of your surgery.

Phones and a television are also provided for their convenience. Coffee is available in the CUPP lobby (one floor below the surgical waiting area) and a cafeteria and vending machines are available on the first floor of the Wright-Saunders building, which is adjacent to CUPP. Our goal is to not only provide you with a caring, comfortable environment but also to offer the same to your loved ones.
