Surgery Center Cedar Rapids expansion project complete

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The first floor operating suite of the Surgery Center Cedar Rapids is opening after an expansion project.

Work began in November on the 7,000-square foot expansion project.

The competed addition includes a dedicated entrance for greeting patients and families, the addition of two operating rooms and 12 added patient care rooms designed for patient convenience and needed capacity.

The expansion provides added convenience for patients while addressing the transition of health care to more outpatient care settings where patients are looking for the lowest cost and highest quality of services.

“It's great to have the project complete,” said Kelly Kray, Surgery Center Cedar Rapids director of nursing. “The extra capacity was needed and our patients appreciate the improvements. They like especially like how it looks.”

The center is designed to meet the needs of patients requiring outpatient surgery in a safe, convenient and cost-effective manner.
