154 Surgery Centers Selected by Becker’s Based on Extensive Research and Publicly Solicited Recommendations
OA Centers for Orthopaedics today announced that it has been named one of “154 Orthopedic and Spine-Driven ASC’s to Know” by Becker’s ASC Review. With over 5,900 ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) in the United States, that places OA’s Orthopaedic Surgery Center in the top 3% nationwide. Becker's ASC Review is a Chicago-based publication focusing on the latest business and legal trends and issues related to ambulatory surgery centers.
To be a leader, OA has had to adapt to the rapid changes taking place in health care. “Change is the new ‘normal,’” said John Wipfler, CEO of OA Centers for Orthopaedics. “As leaders, we have to be constantly moving our organization and seeing the change as an opportunity.”
The list was created as a result of extensive research and publicly-solicited recommendations from around the country. The list includes ambulatory surgery centers focused on orthopedic and minimally invasive spine procedures. Both well-established and newly created surgery centers with the latest technology and methods of care were selected.
“We're lucky to have creative individuals in leadership positions,” said Linda Ruterbories, ANP, director of OA's Orthopaedic Surgery Center. “Our employees are excited about challenges and change, and they feel accountable when we're making a change and want to be a part of it.”
OA’s state-of-the-art orthopedic surgery center is nationally recognized, and federally certified and accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Healthcare. The 10,000 square-foot surgery center includes two state-of-the-art operating rooms that harness the full power of computer and digital technology; the first orthopedic surgery center in Maine to do so. In tandem with advanced on-site x-ray suite, new procedure rooms, expanded MRI availability, expanded post-surgery recovery area, and state-of-the-art surgical facilities, the OA Orthopaedic Surgery Center represents a significant investment in the latest advances in surgical and medical technology. This advanced orthopedic care infrastructure benefits citizens throughout Maine.
