The Eye Surgery Center of Knoxville was completed by Hickory in January 2018. A contemporary facility that caters to the unique needs of each patient, the center is located on Dannaher Drive in Powell, TN, and was designed by UrbanARCH Architecture. The new space welcomes visitors with an open layout, as well as three surgical suites and a spacious recovery area with room for 10 patients.
In keeping with its contemporary interior, the exterior of the center features a modern design achieved via the use of mixed materials including standing seam metal, Trex siding, brick and Hardie panels. A stand-out feature is the facility’s Heating and Air Conditioning System. Humidity is essential during surgery as it keeps eyes from drying out. The center’s system needed to have extra filtration, as well as a higher humidity level. With an almost a 70% humidity rate, the surgical suites feature the levels doctors and patients need.
