New surgical center coming to Siouxland

Posted:
SOUTH SIOUX CITY, NE (KTIV) -

A new development along the Missouri River will break ground soon.

Tri-State Specialists is teaming up with the Delta Hotel to bring the Riverview Surgical Center to South Sioux City, Nebraska.

It is a facility that will be a first in the area.

In fact, the closest facility like the one planned is in Bloomington, Minnesota.

The 52,000 square-foot, two-story private development, will be next to the Delta Hotel, formally known as the Marina Inn, in South Sioux City.

Tri-State Specialists Chief Executive Officer and Board Member Lee Michael Hilka says construction is expected to take a little less than 11 months.

He adds that the new facility will employ 150 people.

$28 million is being spent on new equipment including hospital grade operating rooms.

The building and land are coming in at just under $30 million.

The biggest part of the development is comfort suites.

Patients who have procedures done at the new Riverview Surgical Center and may not be ready to return home can choose to recover with continued supervised care at the Delta Hotel next door.

The goal is to enhance and provide more options for a patient's experience.

The new center will also bring in specialists eliminating travel to places like Omaha or Sioux Falls.

Officials said patients will now have more necessary services right here in Siouxland.

Another perk, some treatments will cost less.

The groundbreaking will take place at the new facility on East 4th Street in South Sioux City next Wednesday.
