Wauwatosa (Wis.) Surgery Center, an affiliate of Surgical Care Affiliates, made its decision to construct a recovery center in November, 2014. The recovery center opened on Sept. 15, 2015, and it has already had an impact on ASC operations.
“We have been able to develop a total joint reconstruction program,” Michael J. Lucey, MS, HSA, administrator of Wauwatosa Surgery Center. “Additionally, general surgeons are now bringing laparoscopic cholestectomy patients, knowing that the 23-hour stay is available, should their patients require that level of care post-surgery.”
