Bradenton, Florida – June 18, 2019 – On Thursday, July 11, 2019, Lakewood Ranch Medical Center (LWRMC) will host a grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting in honor of the completion on the $28.5 million dollar expansion project. The event will take place in LWRMC’s main floor lobby from 5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. which will include a reception and ribbon cutting ceremony with the Manatee Chamber of Commerce, Sarasota Chamber of Commerce and Lakewood Ranch Business Alliance. Following the ribbon cutting, guests are invited to tour the newly renovated and expanded service lines.
The expansion project broke ground in early 2018 and included two new operating rooms, advanced MRI system and suite, new CT scanner, an additional heart catheterization lab, a new location for the Breast Health Center and much more.
Manatee Healthcare System Group Vice President & Manatee Memorial Hospital CEO, Kevin DiLallo, stated, “We are excited to bring this level of advanced medical technology to the community within the OR, Cath Lab and Imaging services. September 1, 2019, marks the 15th anniversary for Lakewood Ranch Medical Center and I am proud of the growth within the hospital and local community. Growth means improving services for our patients in their own local communities – this is the heart of our mission.”
CEO of LWRMC, Andy Guz, added, “The hospital’s new MRI, surgical services and many other upgrades are equipping doctors and providers with the tools they need to provide a higher level of care to our community. Technology is an important component of this growth; from innovative Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) equipment, robotic-assisted surgery and advanced 3D Mammogram screening, efforts are continually underway to improve the patient experience.”
Lakewood Ranch Medical Center Chairman of the Board of Governors, Dr. Robert Hillstrom, stated, “The Board of Governors continues to strive for service excellence, continuous improvement in measurable ways, employee development, ethical and fair treatment for all, teamwork, compassion and innovation in service delivery.”
