Providence Alaska Seeks State Approval for Surgery Center in Wasilla
Bruce Lamoureux, CEO for the Providence Alaska region, said the system will submit a certificate of need application, which is required in Alaska for projects over $1.35 million. If the project clears the CON process, construction could begin in 2013 or early 2014.
The facility is expected to have three pre-operative, seven post-operative and two operating rooms. Mr. Lamoureux said the facility could be beneficial to the region because procedures performed in an outpatient facility are generally cheaper than those performed in a hospital.
