Beginning at 1:30 p.m., the center will host a ribbon-cutting and open house which everyone is welcome to attend. The ribbon-cutting will begin at 2 p.m., and staff will be on hand to show guests its modern operating rooms and equipment. 

In addition, patients and their surgeons from around Southern Utah will be welcome to use Southwest Surgery Center for other outpatient laser and surgical procedures such as ophthalmic, facial plastic, pediatric dental and other procedures.

The center features two operating rooms, a laser operating room and recovery area. It will be staffed with experienced medical professionals and allow surgeons from facilities around the region to operate and establish partnerships there.

Southwest Surgery Center was founded to provide Southern Utah doctors and patients with the latest equipment and procedures for many types of outpatient surgeries, while saving unnecessary expense. Southwest Surgery Center is an ambulatory surgery center where patients can receive same-day surgical care.
