St. Thomas Medical Center Opens
St. Thomas Medical Center is a state-of-the-art facility being built with the goal of exceeding your patient care needs in every possible way. The construction site is located at the corner of 13th Street and Bartley on 6.5 acres atop the hill of the former Dr. Klamer residence.
Our vision is to serve your orthopedic needs with compassionate care, excellence in service, and advanced techniques aimed to promptly return you to work or sport in a complete, healthy manner.
This 53,000 sq. ft. structure will integrate the offices of Dr. Daniel Eby on the second floor with the Memorial Outpatient Surgery Center on the first floor. The building will be staffed with regional employees and aims to infuse life into the local economy through funding by local commerce.
The Surgery Suite, representing a department of Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center, will be collaboratively managed by a local group of physicians whose multi-faceted resources will forge the reputation of becoming the highest quality outpatient surgery center in Southern Indiana.
St. Thomas Medical Center will be Leadership in Efficiency and Energy Design (LEED) Certified, equipped with the latest environmentally-friendly standards. It was designed by CSO Architects and BSA Life Structures of Indianapolis and will be built by Seufert Construction of Ferdinand. Dr. Eby’s offices will hold medical office space, X-ray, on-site physical therapy to include aquatic therapy, and a chapel designed by a Catholic priest. We believe that this approach will offer physical and spiritual healing designed to deliver prompt, comprehensive orthopedic assessment and treatment.
Memorial Outpatient Surgery Center will contain four (4) operating rooms, two (2) endoscopy suites, and an on-site OPEN MRI. We believe that you will find convenience and peace of mind knowing that physical therapy, imaging, surgery, and spiritual healing will all be located in one highly accessible location.
The project is forecast to take 12-15 months to complete with a goal of the grand opening in the summer/fall of 2012. Dr. Eby envisions that the synergistic combination of our patient-centered facility with the award-winning standard quality of service of Memorial Hospital will result in improved treatment outcomes and a higher quality standard of care than that which is already experienced.
You will find that the family-friendly atmosphere and open-door approach of Dr. Daniel Eby Orthopedics and Sports Medicine will leave you with a lasting impression that will keep you coming back to St. Thomas Medical Center for your orthopedic and sports medicine needs. We strive to achieve your satisfaction and hope that you will continue to choose Dr. Eby’s team for your orthopedic needs.
