Appleton surgery center breaks ground

Tower Clock Eye Center is expanding its footprint in Appleton to include a 7085 square foot ambulatory surgery center to focus on cataract, glaucoma and cornea surgeries. The outpatient facility is located next to their eye clinic at 3142 North Richmond St. and is expected to open by late spring 2024.

The new center will house two surgical suites, a procedure room, eight pre op and recovery rooms, offices, storage rooms and adequate additional space. This is the second surgery center Tower Clock Eye Center owns and operates. The other location in Green Bay began operations in 2013.

“Tower Clock Eye Center and Tower Clock Surgery Center have been providing quality patient-focused subspecialty eye care for over a decade,” says Dr. Kurt Schwiesow, one of the owners and surgeons of Tower Clock Eye Center. “We’re excited to bring that same level of care to patients in the Fox River Valley,” he adds.

Tower Clock Eye Center doctors opened their Appleton clinic location in 2022 and pride themselves on offering state-of-the-art eye care technology and giving patients the latest options to best fit their vision needs.

Ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) offer efficiency, better outcomes and lower cost when compared to traditional hospital surgical settings.

A groundbreaking event was hosted by Tower Clock Eye Center, Immel Construction and the Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, July 26th to kick off the project.Tower Clock Eye Center Tower Clock Surgery Center Appleton Tower Clock Eye Center Tower Clock Surgery Center Appleton Tower Clock Eye Center Tower Clock Surgery Center Appleton Tower Clock Eye Center Tower Clock Surgery Center Appleton
