Southview Medical Center to expand with $8 million project

Southview Medical Center is adding two large operating rooms to accommodate increased surgery volume and allow for different kinds of surgeries.

Each operating room will be 700 square feet and will allow a variety of surgeries, including orthopedic, women’s health and general, according to Kettering Health Network, which operates Southview.

The changes proposed at the Washington Twp. hospital mean 5,000 square feet will be added and a wall will be pushed out. Kettering Health said in a statement that the project will cost about $8 million and is expected to be completed in April 2020.

“This latest expansion allows us to address the evolving surgical field and to give surgeons the flexibility they need in performing specialized and minimally invasive procedures,” Richard Manchur, president of Southview Medical Center, stated. “Southview just celebrated its 40th anniversary and we continue to plan for how to best serve our community in the next 40 years.”

Besides Southview, Kettering Health Network hospitals include Kettering Medical Center, Grandview, Sycamore, Greene Memorial, Soin, Fort Hamilton, and Kettering Behavioral Medicine.

The health network is also preparing to open a new hospital in Troy this summer.
