MedWest Health System is breaking ground on a new outpatient services center at 4 p.m. on Monday, July 11, on the MedWest-Haywood campus.
The new outpatient services center will include imaging services, lab services, endoscopy, two outpatient surgery rooms and two procedure rooms, as well as rehabilitation services. Women’s diagnostic services also will be located in the new building, including digital mammography, breast MRI, ultrasound, stereotactic breast imaging, the Nurse Navigator service and bone density testing.
Patients previously had to go to the hospital to receive these services. The outpatients center will provide for a quicker, smoother and easier patient experience.
There also will be space for two physician practices.
MedWest is also opening an urgent care center in Sylva on August 1, and an urgent care center in Canton in December. An inpatient hospice unit at MedWest-Haywood scheduled for completion in November.
