Surgical Care Affiliates (SCA) has entered into an agreement with Suburban Outpatient Surgery Center, a subsidiary of Suburban Hospital Healthcare System, to increase ambulatory surgical services in the Bethesda and Montgomery County areas.
The trascation allows SCA to manage the surgical services for Suburban Outpatient Surgery Center.
SCA will deploy its management systems to strengthen current service lines, and launch new service lines and new specialties at the surgery center.
SCA president and CEO Andrew Hayek said they believe this surgery center will combine clinical quality with a high degree of physician focus, all done in affiliation with Suburban Hospital and Johns Hopkins Medicine.
"We believe our management systems can improve surgical care in Maryland and other areas, and this is another step forward in SCA becoming the partner of choice for Healthcare System," Hayek said.
