South Nassau Communities Hospital in Oceanside, N.Y., has completed construction work on two new surgical suites, according to a press release from the hospital.

The $7 million project converted storage space into two modern operating rooms that can accommodate larger surgical teams and frees up floor space and lines of sight that will enhance communication among surgeons, nurses, and support staff.

The surgical suites are part of South Nassau’s ongiong expansion plans. In late September, South Nassau completed the first phase of a multiyear construction effort to expand its emergency department with the opening of a $4.5 million, 10-bed emergency department annex.
