Officials with LewisGale Hospital Montgomery held a groundbreaking ceremony today to celebrate a $15.9 million expansion of the hospital’s surgery department.
The 7,500-square-foot addition to the hospital’s existing surgery department will include two operating rooms, a 15-bed post-anesthesia care unit, storage, and support space. The project also includes renovating 4,800 square feet of the existing surgery department.
“We are excited to kick off this expansion and renovation project at LewisGale Hospital Montgomery, which has been several years in the making,” said Alan Fabian, the hospital’s chief executive officer. “This is a significant milestone in our pursuit to better meet the growing needs of the New River Valley community. For more than 50 years, our hospital has a history of providing families access to quality healthcare. We look forward to opening the new surgery department and continuing to provide quality, compassionate care for our patients well into the future.”
The surgical improvement and expansion project brings the hospital’s total capital investment since 2019 to nearly $35 million, including recently renovated state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization, advanced medical equipment, new patient safety, and quality efforts.
The project is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2023.
