new operating rooms at Clara Maass Medical CenterClara Maass Medical Center (CMMC) has expanded its surgical capacity with the addition of four new operating rooms. Three of these are general rooms, suitable for general surgical procedures, and a fourth is designed as a hybrid OR, including advanced medical imaging devices that facilitate minimally invasive surgery.

“These state-of-the art rooms are a great addition to our hospital,” says Edward Mercogliano, MD, Director of Surgical Services at CMMC. “They will allow us to perform more laparoscopic and robotic surgeries, and will attract more top specialists to our hospital. Our patients benefit from being able to have state-of-the-art surgery right here at Clara Maass, rather than having to go to tertiary centers for their procedures.”
