Louisa’s primary care provider of surgery services is growing to better serve the community. The first phase of Three Rivers Medical Center’s surgery department expansion opened January15, 2010, with 3,500 additional square feet of surgery space with new amenities ranging from two new OR Suites, new recovery room with six beds and brand new anesthesia equipment. The expansion is the first phase of a two-part, $4.2 million improvement project and begun last spring.
TRMC serves approximately 4,000 patients per year in its surgery department. The expansion provides additional treatment space to accommodate more surgery suites which will allow us to perform more surgeries daily, thus decrease the amount of time a patient will wait.
“As a main provider of surgery services in the Louisa community, one of our top priorities is to provide ample space and amenities to provide our patients with the best surgery care possible,” says Greg Kiser, CEO. “A larger surgery department provides additional treatment space that will enhance patients’ comfort level and improve recovery time.”
The second phase of the project, currently underway, will include new central sterilization, patient waiting room, consultation room and employee staging area. Phase II is scheduled for completion this spring.
