Baptist East opening new surgical center

Montgomery, Ala. (WSFA) -- Baptist Medical Center East is making plans to show off a new surgical center. The new department will provide Baptist East with 21 new, private, medical-surgical patient rooms.

It will allow the hospital to expand the former unit to accommodate additional beds for postpartum and other women's services.

This is the latest expansion at Baptist East, which already added a new MRI, CT, an expanded emergency department, and a neonatal intensive care unit.
