It's been a project in the making for several years. And Dr. Bridget Sundell is so excited to see it across the finish line.

"This is the wave of the future when it comes to surgical care," she explained. 

She's the president of the Northwoods Surgery Center, which is offering multiple specialities at one location. She's partnered with Fairview Range to open this new facility.

"The day-surgery is becoming extremely popular. It feels less like a hospital, and can put patients more at ease. It can also be more efficient and less expensive," Sundell told us.

Sundell's patients are used to the location by Bailey's Lake, because the new center is just across the parking lot from the eye clinic she runs.

She expects that surgeries will start here in month or two.

Wednesday there was a ribbon cutting and open house.
