Lee County -- Palmyra Medical Centers has asked the state for permission to build an outpatient surgery center in Southern Lee County.
Palmyra officials have petitioned the Department of Community Health for a Certificate of Need to build the ambulatory surgery center. If they receive the state's permission, the Center would be built at U.S. 19 and Old Leesburg Road.
The projected 15,000 square foot center, would be equipped with four operating suites and two treatment rooms.
Palmyra President Bud Wethington said the center is needed because of the dramatic increase in outpatient surgeries. "It will be an easy access into and out of the center. It is also more cost effective, because patients are able to get in and be treated much more quickly. It's just more efficient." said Wethington.
The outpatient surgery center would be built as a joint venture with local surgeons, who would treat their patients there.
Wethington says there is no timetable when the Lee County center might open, because they have to wait for Certificate of Need approval first.
