Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center to Build 10,000-Square-Foot Surgery Center
The VA is seeking approval from the Cleveland City Planning Commission for the one-story building, which would handle minimally invasive procedures including cataracts, biopsies and plastic surgery.
The center has been approved by the national VA. According to Ashley Trimble, VA public affairs specialist, the center will "free up room for patients who need to be admitted for longer, more invasive" procedures at the main Wade Park hospital. The surgery center will also help the Cleveland VA handle an annual workload that has jumped from 15,000 patients annually 15 years ago to more than 105,000 veterans in 2012.
