Lafayette General Announces New Ambulatory Surgery Center
Lafayette General Health (LGH) gave a sneak peek of a new ambulatory surgery center soon to open within Lafayette General Surgical Hospital (LGSH) at a ribbon-cutting ceremony today. The event also celebrated LGSH’s 10th anniversary, noting the hospital’s first surgery on November 11, 2004.
Located on the second floor of Lafayette General Surgical Hospital, Oil Center Surgical Plaza (OCSP) encompasses seven pre-op beds, four state-of-the-art operating rooms and 12 post-op/recovery beds. The 12,656 sq. ft. facility is intended to accommodate less complicated surgical procedures related to ophthalmology, ENT, plastic surgery and pain management.
OCSP comes in response to the continued growth of surgical services at both Lafayette General Medical Center (LGMC) and LGSH. “Over the past three years we’ve experienced double digit growth in surgical volume, thanks to the success of our existing surgeons and our continued efforts to recruit needed specialties to this region,” says Lafayette General Health President David L. Callecod, FACHE. The ambulatory surgery center is part of Lafayette General Health and is co-owned by Lafayette General Medical Center and local physicians.
“Oil Center Surgical Plaza will increase operating room capacity for our talented team of surgeons in an efficient, high-quality environment while adhering to Lafayette General’s exceptional level of patient care,” adds OCSP’s administrator Kenny LeBaron.
