Community and business leaders and a City Councilmember christened the grand opening of two new state-of-the-art facilities, Tower Wound Care Center of Santa Monica (TWC) and Tower Surgical Center (TSC), at St. John’s Medical Plaza.
“As a Santa Monica City Council member, I am pleased to formally welcome the Tower Surgical Center and the Tower Wound Care Center of Santa Monica,” said Santa Monica City Councilmember Gleam Davis.
Centrally located at 1301 20th Street in Suite 470, Tower Wound Care Center will serve as the only specialty wound care center on the Westside, providing a staff of Board Certified physicians for the care and management of difficult and chronic wounds.
Tower Surgical Center offers surgeons, nurses, and support personnel the ability to provide optimal patient care for most outpatient surgical and diagnostic procedures in a modern center equipped with the latest technology. It also works with University Stem Cell Center to provide on-site adult stem cell treatments to aid in wound healing and tissue regeneration, enabling doctors to solve many clinical problems.
Davis said the availability of wound care and outpatient surgical procedures will enhance the options available to Santa Monicans and the entire Southern California population, as health care providers are given an additional innovative facility to respond to the health care needs of our entire community.
On-site facilities include four modern exam rooms, treatment facilities, V.A.C. Therapy system for wound care patients, two advanced surgical suites, recovery area with four beds, advanced patient monitoring systems, patient changing room, private physician facilities, and separate private exit.
The driving force behind these new medical centers is Dr. Joel Aronowitz, whose noted work with breast cancer reconstruction and surgical techniques is world-renowned. As founder of the Breast Preservation Foundation, Aronowitz is a leader in women’s health education and the promotion of healthy educational choices for women.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony and grand opening receptions for physicians, staff and invited community leaders took place February 25, at 10:30 a.m.
