Kansas' Via Christi Hospital Accepts Bids for New Surgery Center
Via Christi Hospital in Pittsburg, Kan., has accepted bids from general contractors for the new Via Christi Surgery Center, according to a Morning Sun report.
The hospital invited six general contractors to bid on the project. The $18 million surgery center is the largest project of its kind since the hospital was built in 1971. The expansion of the southeast side of the hospital is estimated to be close to 40,000 square feet and will be adjacent to the hospital and connected to the main building.
The new surgery center will feature operating, endoscopy, pre- and post-operating and all private recovery rooms. Via Christi hopes the surgery center will attract an additional 20 surgeons over the next three years. The start date is estimated to be in June or July of 2013.
