BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Mid City has its first outpatient surgery center that's open and ready for patients, according to a Monday morning release from Baton Rouge General.

The Mid City Specialty Center is located on BRG's Mid City campus. The center is the area's first ambulatory surgery center specializing in same-day surgeries and minimally invasive procedures for vascular patients, BRG said.

"Patients will appreciate the personal touch and convenience of an outpatient surgery center," said Naomi Nelson, Chief Executive Officer of Vascular Specialty Center. "And with 12,000 square feet, this space gives us the opportunity to expand to other types of surgeries and procedures we can offer to residents in the area."

The renovations to the location's existing operating suite will give surgeons the capability to perform same-day surgeries ranging from non-invasive procedures to more complex surgeries. The waiting area has also been completely renovated, which will provide more comfort and space for patients and family members.
