E.J. Noble Hospital reopens operating room


GOUVERNEUR — E.J. Noble Hospital has reopened its operating room with upgrades to its heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system that were completed at the end of June.

“The reopening is another step forward in the hospital’s plan to stabilize and revitalize essential services for the community,” CEO Marlinda L. LaValley said in a statement. “Our staff and surgeons worked with assistance from staff at Canton-Potsdam Hospital to assure that procedures were in place to perform surgery with the highest possible quality.”

Eleven eye surgeries were done Monday. More surgeries are scheduled, including arthroscopic knee surgery and minor orthopedic surgeries, with Dr. George Mina.

The hospital hopes to offer general surgeries, such as colonoscopies. Dr. Nicholas Gardner also uses the operating room for dentistry procedures on patients who require general anesthesia.

The hospital expects to have a part-time general surgeon by the fall.
