WEST DES MOINES, Iowa, June 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Wolfe Eye Clinic announced breaking ground today on a new 25,000
"Providing high quality technology driven ophthalmologic care to Iowans has always been our top priority," said Kevin Swartz, Chief Executive Officer for Wolfe Clinic. "This new state-of-the-art facility will provide more convenient access for patients and more capacity as our organization continues to grow in ophthalmology sub-specialists and patient base."
Once complete, the new building will serve as the sole home of Wolfe Surgery Center, which currently occupies a suite in the existing West Des Moines location. The current West Des Moines building is a 38,000 square foot, 6.5 million dollar facility that opened in 2004. By dedicating a new building to Wolfe Surgery Center patients and staff, it will allow for the addition of new doctors and a redesign within the current building.
Wolfe Eye Clinic has collaborated with SVPA Architects, Weitz Construction and Waldinger Corporation in the new building project. Construction of the new facility is expected to complete in the summer of 2019, just as Wolfe Eye Clinic celebrates their 100-year anniversary. Wolfe Eye Clinic performs more than 6,500 surgeries per year out of their current location with the potential to double their volume with this new surgical facility.
