Cone Health Plans Surgery Center for Kernersville
The surgery center will be part of Cone Health MedCenter Kernersville.
Kernersville area residents will have a new option when it comes to surgery. Cone Health has received state permission to open an outpatient surgery center. The center will include two operating rooms, an endoscopy room and a procedure room. It will be on the campus of Cone Health MedCenter Kernersville at 1635 NC-66 South.
“We look forward to bringing the exceptional surgical care that Cone Health is known for across our communities,” says Deno Adkins, vice president, ambulatory network, Cone Health. “MedCenter Kernersville already offers urgent care services 7 days a week as well as primary care, sports medicine, OB/GYN, specialty, rehabilitation, behavioral medicine, imaging, lab and employee health & wellness services. The addition of on-site surgery makes accessing care locally more convenient.”
The facility will be used for surgeries and procedures that do not require an overnight stay. These range from biopsies and hernia repair to knee and shoulder surgery.
Design work is under way for the 15,500 sq. ft. addition. Cone Health hopes to begin construction next year with an opening of the multi-million-dollar project in 2023.
