Cincinnati Eye Institute expands services to Middletown with new surgery center
Cincinnati Eye Institute (CEI) will open its second ambulatory surgery center in mid-September, marking the first time retina surgery services will be available to patients in Middletown.
The new CEI Middletown Surgery Center, located at 5950 Innovation Drive at the Bidwell Center, is next to the new CEI clinical offices which opened in November 2016 near the campus of Atrium Medical Center. The facility features three operating rooms, 14 pre- and post-surgical bays, at-the-door parking, private discharge, and additional space to accommodate future growth. The full range of ophthalmic surgical services will be available at the new surgery center including cataract, glaucoma, cornea, oculoplastic, and retina surgery. This represents the first time that retina surgery will be performed in the Middletown area.
"This was an ideal opportunity to expand our services to allow Middletown-area patients to have eye surgery closer to their homes,” said Todd Albertz, VP of Surgical Services at CEI. “Investing in additional operating rooms means a shorter wait for patients to have their surgeries, and more convenient access for their families.”
"We are excited to be expanding our capabilities and availability for ophthalmic surgery to patients in the Middletown area,” said Daniel Miller, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Medical Officer at CEI. “CEI has a long history of providing ophthalmology care in Middletown. With our expanded clinical office and new surgery center, we will be able to meet the needs for the growing patient population along the I-75 corridor.”
CEI's specialists mainly perform surgery at the Ambulatory Surgery Center at its Blue Ash campus, along with doing surgeries at various hospitals throughout the Greater Cincinnati area. CEI physicians who will perform surgeries in the new Middletown location include:
· Dr. Robert Goulet (glaucoma and cataract specialist)
· Dr. Ginger Henson (ophthalmic plastic reconstructive specialist)
· Dr. Daniel Miller (retina specialist)
· Dr. Michael Nordlund (cornea specialist)
· Dr. Gary Varley (cornea and refractive surgical specialist)
