Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital's surgery center grand opening draws hundreds

People did not want to miss their one and only opportunity to cross the “red line” for a close-up look at Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital’s shiny-new surgery center Friday afternoon.

Before the doors opened, the line reached around the block.

The hospital chief operating officer Troy Hanson was there when the people began the tour of the new $15 million surgery center that some said Friday was the finest in the state.

“I just kept hearing the words ‘wow’ and ‘it’s amazing,’” Hanson said. “It warms my heart to see the community turn out like this and come in to check it out for themselves. Without walking through, they would have no idea of just what we have here.”

Hanson has seen a lot of changes at the hospital since he first started working there as a lab tech 24 years ago, but the addition of the 26,000-square-foot surgery center filled with state-of-the-art equipment may be the most important.

“This is the largest addition that we’ve done in my 24 years here,” he said. “It’s as large as the ER and physical therapy combined.”
