Ophthalmology Services Begin at Premier Ambulatory Surgical Center
April 24th marked the first day of ophthalmology services at Premier’s ASC, with six patients of Dr. Charles Kutina successfully undergoing cataract removal and lens implant surgery.
Adding this service has been a coordinated team effort. Premier partnered with Sightpath Medical, and worked closely with Dr. Kutina, Jenny Pietrick (RN, Manager of the ASC), Anesthesia Associates, Tim Eyeson from McKesson, Ken Vilagi (Building Engineer), as well as many others to make this happen at our Westlake facility.
All six patients went home within a few hours of their procedure, and offered feedback that they were pleased with the high quality of care they received. They also commented on the efficient, friendly, and personalized treatment they received from Dr. Kutina the ASC staff.
There are plans to continue and expand the frequency of these procedures, which offer a convenient and less costly option to our patients in need of this surgery.
The Premier ASC is AAAHC accredited and all RN staff and anesthesia providers are ACLS certified. Dr. Charles Kutina is highly trained with extensive experience in routine eye exams and care, as well as eye surgery, and is happy to accept referrals (office phone 440-331-2060).
