Capital Region Medical Center announced the construction of an outpatient surgery center on the hospital campus. Located on the ground level of the Capital Region Physicians’ office building, the new 24,000-square-foot addition will house four operating rooms, two endoscopic procedure rooms, imaging suites, and space to accommodate future growth. All pre- and post-procedure rooms will be private and thoughtfully designed with a patient-centered approach. The decision to expand services in an outpatient setting is part of CRMC’s commitment to continued innovation, allowing more surgeries and procedures to be conducted on an outpatient basis, thereby allowing patients to recover in the comfort of their own surroundings. Construction will likely begin in the spring. Once the ground is broken, CRMC expects construction to take a year and a half.
