Southview Medical Center to add two large operating rooms
Story by Elizabeth Long
Kettering Adventist HealthCare's Southview Medical Center is adding two large operating rooms (ORs) 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 ORs, 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.
“This 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.”
