Eastern Niagara Hospital will host a grand-opening celebration event for its new ambulatory surgery center, located at 5875 S. Transit Road, Lockport. The event, scheduled for 2 until 7 p.m. Monday, March 2, will include tours of the facility and details of the $3 million project.
Several local establishments, including DeFlippo's Restaurant, Donna Eick's Divine Catering and the Cream & Sugar Café, will serve complimentary refreshments. Dr. Varallo's Spring Lake Winery will be providing wine tastings.
Niagara Regional Surgery Center is a state-of-the-art surgical center, and the first of its kind in Niagara County. The new facility has four surgical suites, as well as pre-operative areas, recovery and support functions. Surgical specialties to be provided at NRSC include: orthopedics, plastic/reconstructive surgery, gynecology, gastroenterology, ophthalmology and general surgery.
Niagara Regional Surgery Center will accommodate additional patients from the Eastern Niagara community and surrounding areas, to provide cost-effective and efficient care in a state-of-the-art setting, and to respond to a public desire for outpatient surgical services in the region.
The completion of the ambulatory surgery center culminates a number of projects at ENH's Transit Road site, which also includes Western New York Occupational Medicine, Express Care, primary medical care and an imaging center.
The project completes the hospital's effort to grow its selection of health care services in a manner responsive to evolving health care trends, paying particular attention to the voice of the community. Redevelopment of the Transit Road location into a high-throughput outpatient care destination with operating rooms, urgent care center and a diagnostic radiology center will reposition and complement the hospital for continued success in Eastern Niagara County.
The public is invited to attend the event. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at 5:30 p.m.
