Physicians Care Surgery Center in Royersford, located just a few hundred feet away from the Physicians Care Surgical Hospital, is getting closer to its debut, writes John George for the Philadelphia Business Journal.
The $15 million outpatient surgery center was developed through a partnership between local health care providers Rothman Orthopaedic Institute, Main Line Health, and Jefferson Health, Kansas-based NueHealth, and several local physicians. The group also owns the nearby hospital.
Both the inpatient hospital and the soon-to-be-open ambulatory surgery center have small groups of physicians as minority owners.
The new facility has six operating rooms along with 12 pre-operation bays and 15 post-operative beds. The surgeries done there will include cataract surgery and interventional pain management surgery, among others.
“The surgeries we do here will be for lower-acuity patients who will be here for less than 23 hours,” said John Paoni, administrator of Physician Care Surgery Center. “We’ll be doing same-day surgery. Across the street they keep them overnight.”
Pending the necessary state health department approvals, the center hopes to start performing procedures by the end of the year or early in 2020.
