After more than four years of planning, the new Ambulatory Surgery Center is now open and accepting new patients.

Located at 9800 Levin Road, the facility boasts 9,500 square feet of available space for medical procedures. It is located in the Clear Creek Medical Center.

The Ambulatory Surgery Center provides a multitude of day surgeries and features procedures in orthopedics, chronic pain management, podiatry, opthamology, cataracts, glaucoma and other various general surgeries.

“The primary reason we did this is quality of care,” said Ambulatory Surgery Center project coordinator Dr. Blake Reiter. “It’s a quality place where people receive good care ... it’s a place surgeons can take their patients.”

Although the process to create the day-surgery center took nearly five years to complete, Kevin Ryan of Tim Ryan Construction said the building process didn’t run into any major problems. The construction on the building started in October. The owners of the project include Kitsap Outpatient Surgery LLC and Harrison Medical Center.

Doctors who are included in the Ambulatory Surgery Center are Todd Schneinderman, Eric Cole, Jason Chung, John Kerrigan and Reiter. Upon referral, the facility can take in most patients, is part voluntary and accepts Medicare.

“The health care industry seems to be moving toward the Silverdale area,” Reiter said. “We felt there was a need for this service here.”
