The hospital's Education Center is located at 501 N. Elam Ave and separate from the main hospital entrance off Friendly Ave.

You may park up front & to the right of the Education Center, further down to the right in our short stay lot, directly across the street from the Education Center in the Lebauer Healthcare lot, or in one of the adjoining lots on the opposite side of Elam Ave. That is closer than parking in the main hospital parking lot & walking up the sidewalk or through the hospital.

INFORMATION ABOUT OUR BARIATRIC SURGERY PROGRAM:

  • We currently DO NOT accept MEDICAID or the COMPASS plan from UHC for weight loss surgery when it is the PRIMARY & ONLY insurance. You will need to contact another bariatric center if this is your only coverage at this time with no expected changes.

  • You MUST be at least 18 years of age to be considered for surgical options at our center.

  • You may be a candidate for surgery if you have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40 or greater, or a BMI between 35-39.9 AND serious obesity-related health problems to be considered for bariatric surgery.
