New center will offer multi-specialty surgery, including outpatient total joint replacement
ValueHealth, LLC, a privately held, nationally trusted digital and surgical healthcare partner announces the opening of Physicians Care Surgery Center, a joint venture partnership with Rothman Orthopaedic Institute, Main Line Health and Jefferson Health and local physicians.
Eight years ago, Physicians Care Surgical Hospital opened in western Montgomery County. This new 27,000 sq ft outpatient surgery center is located on the campus of the hospital. The surgery center offers multi-specialty outpatient surgery including a state-of-the-art hyper-specialty total joint platform to serve the Delaware Valley community. Stay suites that offer an extended stay opportunity for orthopaedic patients will be located in the same building as the ASC. This Ambulatory Centers of Excellence (ACE) Certified facility is one of six facilities that ValueHealth, Rothman Orthopaedics, and Health System Partners are developing in the Greater Philadelphia area.
“With this strategic partnership expansion, adding an ambulatory surgery center to the campus allows the Physicians Care teams to perform total joint replacements and other high acuity procedures meeting the needs of their patients conveniently and affordably, becoming the new model for a thriving health system of the future,” said John Palumbo, ValueHealth Executive Chairman. “ValueHealth has a longstanding relationship with Rothman Orthopaedics, Main Line Health and Jefferson Health and this expanded partnership is a result of our proven success together.”
The addition of the surgery center to the campus will free up capacity at Physicians Care Hospital by shifting appropriate outpatient procedures to the new surgery center said Mike West, CEO of Rothman Orthopaedics. “The ASC will continue to move our organization forward into the future with the highest quality clinical outcomes in a safe, convenient and lower cost surgical setting. We are proud to bring this opportunity to our community and the patients we serve.”
Founded on the fundamentals of payment reform and consumerism, ValueHealth is a technology enabled, data-driven healthcare services company with a surgical digital platform that accelerates transition from fee-for-service to value-based surgical care while successfully positioning our provider partners to flourish in an emerging risk environment. ValueHealth’s platform affiliates Nuehealth, Muve Health, Healthcare Re, Benefit Management, and Bridgedcare uniquely position ValueHealth to deliver high value surgical care for payors, providers, and patients.
