CASCADE, Mich. (WZZM) -- Metro Health is showing off its newest facility, a new outpatient surgery center. It's located at Metro Health Park East, on Cascade Road.
Metro Health held an open house Tuesday to show off the 20,000 square foot facility. It features three surgical suites for a variety of procedures.
"The type of cases that will be done here are procedures that are usually anywhere from 15 minutes to a two-hour procedure, with an hour or two for recovery time and then the patients go home within two to four hours," said director Linda Kirk.
Kirk says Metro Health Park East's location is ideal because it is close to the highway and it lets them expand Metro Health into a new part of Kent County.
In addition to the surgical center, the center will feature an urgent care center and a wound healing center. The first surgery is scheduled later this month.
