Regent Surgical Health is developing the first ambulatory surgery center in the Northwest region dedicated specifically to performing total joint replacements and treating spine disorders, according to the press release.

Here are six things to know:

 

1. The ASC is a joint venture between Regent and Beaverton, Ore.-based West End Surgical ASC's physician affiliates.

 

2. Regent and West End Surgical expect to open Beaverton-based Oregon Surgical Institute in the early fall.

 

3. Equipped with three operating rooms, the 15,000-square-foot ASC will also house one procedure room.

 

4. Oregon Surgical Institute features wide halls and a rehabilitation unit to meet post-operative physical therapy requirements. The ASC also has areas dedicated to equipment sterilization.

 

5. The center will offer spine, total joints, orthopedics, hand, interventional pain management as well as orthobiologic therapies, including platelet rich plasma, stem cells and amniotic membrane-derived growth factors.

 

6. In the United States, Regent is in partnership with 23 surgery centers. The company also has two ASCs in Europe.

 

"The move of higher acuity cases such as outpatient total joint replacement to outpatient centers is transforming the healthcare landscape and Regent has helped develop strategies for its 17 hospital partners and 23 surgery centers to adapt and thrive," said Regent CEO Chris Bishop. "Our partners at West End Surgical are joining us to do something that is among the first of its kind in the United States — build a center of excellence designed specifically to enhance the quality of care, increase convenience and lower the cost of care of OTJR and spine."
