Southview Medical Center is adding two operating rooms to accommodate increased surgery volume and allow for different kinds of surgeries. Each operating room will be 700 square feet and will allow a variety of surgeries, including orthopedic, women’s health, and general.
To make room for the new operating rooms, 5,000 square feet will be added to Southview, which will involve pushing out a wall. The project will cost approximately $8 million and is expected to be completed in April 2020.
“The latest expansion allows us to address the evolving surgical field and to give surgeons the flexibility they need in performing specialized and minimally invasive procedures.” says Richard Manchur, president of Southview Medical Center. “Southview just celebrated its 40th anniversary and we continue to plan for how to best serve our community in the next 40 years.”
