The study's purpose was to estimate the potential economic benefit of the optimization of postanesthesia care units (PACUs).
A simulation model was designed and used to test the economic impact of a reduction of length of stay.
For the studied PACU, a reduction of 25% of length of stay is required to yield significant economic results.
