New eye surgery center to open in Lake Hallie
Posted: September 10, 2010
Independent Surgery Center, a newly-established business that will specialize in cataract and eyelid surgery as well as cornea transplants, will be opening in an existing strip center along Commercial Boulevard in the Village of Lake Hallie by the end of November, according to one of the co-owners, Dr. Thomas Harvey of Eau Claire. The other partner is Dr. Terry McCanna of Chippewa Falls.
"We hope to create an environment to allow our patients to have the best technology at the best price," said Dr. Harvey, who said the facility will operate similar to a hospital except that it will be more streamlined and much less expensive.
Independent Surgery Center, which will initially employ about 20 people, will lease 3,500 square feet of space in the complex which is presently occupied by Back on Track Chiropractic, Edward Jones and Verizon Wireless.
Dean Larsen of Acquisition Realty & Development handled the lease agreement on behalf of Superior,WI-based RJS Construction Group, LLC, which owns the strip center. TBL
