GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – Prevea Health’s new surgery center in Green Bay is planning on opening its doors in May.
Prevea says that the Prevea Surgery Center is currently under construction at 1860 Shawano Avenue. The new building will be approximately 35,000 square feet and will feature four operating rooms, ten procedure rooms, eight post-anesthesia care unit rooms and nearly 30 surgical prep and recovery rooms.

- Kidney stone removal
- Breast reduction
- Hip and knee procedures
- Cataract surgery
Officials say that this surgery center comes at a great time, as demand for surgical services continues to grow.

The surgery center will be one block west of HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital Medical Center.
