- A Wausau eye clinic will soon be able to treat emergency and other surgeries right on site. The Eye Clinic of Wisconsin is finishing up a 6,000 square foot state-of-the-art addition.
The clinic in Wausau has served the area for 50 years, and it sees more than 60,000 patient visits each year. With the surgical center addition they expect that number to increase by 3,500.
"We can increase the flexibility in terms of how we can schedule patients, delivering better care with flexibility in scheduling. It allows us to control the technology, so we can stay on the cutting edge of technology and providing state-of-the-art care to our patients," says Dr. Douglas Edwards, an Ophthalmologist at the clinic.
The clinic is also increasing its staff by nearly ten percent, with the addition of nine new staff members.
Administrators say the center will be ready for patients in early January.
