The Surgical Care Center was created in 1985 with one goal in mind: total patient satisfaction. Every detail, from the check-in stations to the surgical suites, was designed specifically to meet the needs of patients undergoing eye surgery. This cataract surgery center was a relatively new concept at the time. In fact, Surgical Care Center was one of the first free-standing ambulatory surgery centers in Indiana. Today, it is home to Eye Surgeons of Indiana, the world renowned leaders and innovators in cataract and related surgery.
The Surgical Care Center has earned an AAAHC Accredited Ambulatory Surgery Center, which is the highest honor of certification available.
