Practice Management

The Center for Sports Medicine and Orthopaedics has begun building an $18.7 million surgery center in Tyler, Tenn., the Chattanooga Times Free Press reported May 24.

The 37,500-square-foot ASC will replace the 22-physician orthopedic group's surgical facilities in downtown Chattanooga. It will feature eight operating rooms, two procedure rooms and 40 preoperative and recovery bays.

"We are thrilled to break ground on our new surgery center, which we anticipate will be a destination for orthopedics in our region," said Benjamin Miller, MD, medical director for the group's ASC. "We made the decision to pursue the new ambulatory surgery center to expand our footprint and be a leader — both in our community and across the country — for innovative outpatient orthopedic surgical care."

About 75 to 80 people, including up to 21 physicians, are expected to staff the ASC, according to the report. It is expected to open in summer 2023.
