Mercy Breaks Ground on Ambulatory Care Center
Mercy Medical Center broke ground on a new, 40,000-square-foot ambulatory care center, which will be connected to the hospital by an enclosed walkway. The new facility will feature an outpatient surgery center with two operating rooms and a birthing center that will be the only hospital-based outpatient birthing facility in the northwestern U.S. Eight birthing suites are furnished with flat-screen televisions and fireplaces to provide a comfortable environment for labor, delivery and recovery. After completion of the new center, Mercy will also expand its emergency department to accommodate the growing need for emergency care in the region. For more information, contact Leslie Sullivan.
