On Tuesday, April 26, Barton Malow team members stood alongside Deaconess Health Systems CEO Shawn McCoy and President Lynn Lingafelter to cut the ribbon on the Deaconess GI Specialty Center in Evansville, Indiana.
“This center has been designed with the priority of adding to the patient experience,” Lingafelter said in an interview with Evansville’s 44 News. “By bringing all aspects of GI care into one building, our GI experts will be able to work together, seamlessly and in real-time, in a state-of-the-art facility to offer the highest standards of care.”
The three-story, 147,000-SF Center is a hub for patients to receive care from experts in the gastrointestinal field. It includes a comprehensive endoscopy center with nine procedure rooms and 48 preparation and recovery spaces and provides room for procedural and office expansion for future patient care needs. Deaconess began patient treatment on Friday, May 6.
