The Eye Care Institute announces the relocation of our Suburban Hospital office, currently located at Suburban Medical Plaza, 4001 Dutchmans Lane, Suite LLD, Louisville, KY, 40207. This change will occur by the end of October 2006. After the relocation, patient care at The Eye Care Institute in the Louisville area will be provided at our offices at 1536 Story Avenue, near I-64 in Butchertown, and at Audubon Medical Plaza West at 2355 Poplar Level Road on the campus of Audubon Hospital. Background Since about 1973 (the year the Suburban Medical Plaza building opened), The Eye Care Institute (and its predecessor medical practice names) has provided eye care on Dutchman�s Lane. Realizing our need for both a technology upgrade and a decorative face lift, we surveyed our Suburban office patients. Almost 350 patients responded to our survey. About 320 stated the doctor is more important than the location and would be happy to travel to our Story Avenue or Audubon Hospital offices to keep seeing the same doctor. About 20 patients stated the location is more important than the doctor and would not follow us to another location. About 10 patients were unsure. Therefore, our patients, in a landslide decision, made it very easy to us to decide to vacate our Suburban Hospital suite. Location Choices Both our Story Avenue and Audubon Hospital locations offer these conveniences: – Easy surface lot parking adjacent to our suite – First floor location � no elevator – Covered drop off to keep you dry in bad weather – Large Optical Shop with wide selection of frames – Large, modern clinical space providing excellent care – Located just over 6 miles from our Suburban office Medical Records Transfers If Dr. Carol Parker currently provides your care, your records will automatically transfer to our Audubon Medical Plaza West location. If Dr. Brennan Greene currently provides your care, please choose whether you prefer your records transferred to our Story Avenue location or our Audubon Medical Plaza West location. If Dr. John Meyer currently provides your care, your records will automatically transfer to our Story Avenue location. New East End Office Contemplated We recognize our need to open a new location farther east, probably along the Gene Snyder Freeway close to where Norton, Jewish and Baptist are building new hospitals. So, look for a new, larger office of The Eye Care Institute in the East End within the next few years. Economic Impact No jobs will be lost as a result of this relocation. All Suburban office staff and doctors will be transferred to our Story Avenue or Audubon Hospital offices. A small construction project will occur at our Audubon office to accommodate the additional patient volume. This dollar amount of that project has not yet been determined. Both the Story Avenue and Audubon Hospital offices will receive communication technology upgrades as a result of the office transfer. The dollar amount of those upgrades has not yet been determined.
