I was up at the Walmart in the University Town Center when I saw that WVU Healthcare was building a new $52 million outpatient center across the street. I wasn't sure if anyone else had seen this, so I wanted to share. It'll be much easier to get there than down to the hospital, especially when the new interchange on I-79 is open.

WVU Healthcare has been growing by leaps and bounds in recent years, and I believe this will speed up that process.

That is huge. Outpatient surgeries are becoming more common. They are now able to cater these surgeries to the patient. I had my Achilles' tendon surgically repaired at Three Gables in Proctorville, Ohio 6 months ago. The place was very nice. Played whatever music I liked before they subdued me. And gives you the feel that the entire staff was there just for you, rather than being 1 in a 1000 in the hustle and bustle of the main hospital.

I'll never forget the feeling I had in the hospital in Mount Kisco, NY when I had a kidney stone that required surgically removal. The urologist had 8 of us lined up on gurneys in the hall outside of the operating room (like planes taxiing down the runway), and the anesthesiologist walked from one to the next saying "hello, I'm Dr. Ching, I'm going to give you something to make you feel good". That was 20 years ago, and I was thinking these guys are going to have a pretty good day. The urologist is making $10,000 for each of the 8 of us, and the feel good man $900 each. Sure beats minimum wage for a morning's work.

I think these days, even if you have surgery inside a hospital they pretty much do it like outpatient where you're out the door in no time at all.
