Samantha Voepel of Lake St. Louis was a little nervous about her tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy, but she and her mom were comforted by the staff and nurturing atmosphere of Cardinal Glennon’s new Pediatric Surgery Center at SSM St. Joseph Medical Park.
Samantha, a 16-year-old junior at Timberland High School, was Dr. John Park’s first patient on July 10 in the new surgery center located at 1475 Kisker Road in St. Charles County.
Convenience was the biggest factor for Samantha and her mom when they chose Cardinal Glennon’s new surgery center for Samantha’s procedure.
“Samantha needed surgery right away, and we were able to get in much sooner here,” said Cindy Barry, Samantha’s mom.
Samantha’s family lives just six miles from St. Joseph Medical Park, making the decision to have her surgery there much easier. In addition, she still received high quality care of Cardinal Glennon physicians and nurses.
Cardinal Glennon also has a pediatric surgery center at St. Anthony’s Medical Center in South County, bringing trusted Glennon care to convenient locations throughout St. Louis.
“Our surgery centers bring convenience to the community, but they also add a measure of medical and nursing excellence,” says Susan Staub, Executive Director of Glennon Care for Kids. “At St. Joseph Medical Park, parents will find pediatric surgeons and pediatric anesthesiologists who are highly trained to work with children. Caring for children is at the center of everything we do.”
Dr. Park will perform ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeries every Thursday in the new center. Other pediatric surgery specialties will follow at a later date.
