Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin is happy to announce that we are in the process of building a new facility we will call home! Our new facility will allow for better efficiencies, as we continue to improve our services. The facility will better accommodate our team, as we have expanded our services significantly over the past 2 years by bringing cornea processing services in-house, established our own in-house Donor Support Center, which has allowed us to effectively screen for donation eligibility with our hospital partners, and best support our donor families.
The 14,000 sq. ft. facility will also house wet lab training space for residents, and established surgeons in order for them to learn new procedures, and perfect their techniques, prior to performing procedures in the operating room. The facility will be located just south of the Beltline near the Stoughton Road exit, in Tradewinds Park. We expect to take occupancy late fall 2018.
