Offering high-quality, lower cost care at new ASC in Northern California
United Surgical Partners International (USPI) and Dignity Health recently announced the opening of the Citrus Heights Surgery Center, a new 16,000 square-foot ambulatory surgery center. Approximately 70 physicians are expected to join the medical staff of the center which will serve patients in greater Sacramento. The center is a joint venture between USPI, Dignity Health and local physicians.
“We are pleased to see this important project come to fruition and honored to have the opportunity to serve the community here in Citrus Heights and beyond,” said Eric Boon, Market President, USPI. “We are deeply committed to enhancing access to top quality care together with Dignity and our physician partners.”
“By partnering with USPI, the ability to increasingly provide care in an outpatient setting is made possible thanks to significant advances in surgical techniques, medical technology, and pain control which results in many benefits to patients including faster recovery times, significant cost savings and historically fewer complications,” said Michael Korpiel, President of Dignity Health Mercy San Juan Medical Center.
Citrus Heights Surgery Center will offer services including outpatient general surgery, otolaryngology, orthopedics, gastroenterology, pain management, podiatry and other procedures. The facility will feature three operating room beds, three treatment bays and 11 recovery unit beds for patients undergoing same-day surgeries.
“This state-of-the-art facility is providing needed medical services to residents of Citrus Heights and the Sacramento region and bringing high level jobs to our community,” said City of Citrus Height’s Mayor Porsche Middleton. “I look forward to having them serve our community with high-quality medical care for many generations.”
