On Dec. 2, St. Luke’s opened a new $12 million outpatient surgery center on the campus of St. Luke’s Meridian Medical Center.

St. Luke’s initially broke ground on the nearly 30,000 square-foot facility on Feb. 1. The new center will add additional surgery capacity to St. Luke’s Meridian, which previously did not have ambulatory surgery resources.

On Tuesday, Dec. 2 the Meridian Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon cutting, which was followed by an open house and tours.

Prior to this expansion, patients needing outpatient surgery were treated in the Meridian main operating rooms.

“Providing an outpatient surgery resource in Meridian will help us better meet the demand for these services and allow us to use the main operating rooms to perform more complex procedures,” said Kathy Moore, St. Luke’s Treasure Valley Chief Operating Officer.

The outpatient surgery center in Meridian is opening with two operating suites, but the center has capacity to add an additional four operating suites to meet future demand.

Gardner Co., the developer that built the St. Luke’s Nampa Medical Plaza, was selected to build the center, which is located in the Northwest parking lot of St. Luke’s Meridian.
