Holston Medical Group is planning on reopening an outpatient surgery center at the Bristol West building at the Pinnacle in Bristol. This comes after the previous surgery center at the previous surgery center dissolved and ceased operations in August of last year.
According to officials from HMG, the reopening of the outpatient surgery center will help the community with patient-centric, low-cost outpatient surgical alternatives.
The surgery center also plans on providing partnership opportunities for independent surgical physicians in the Bristol and regional community to provide outpatient surgical care in a high-quality, lower-cost setting.
“We are committed to providing this region with cost-effective, value-based solutions for patients and to meeting the medical needs of our communities,” Scott Fowler, M.D., FACOG, President and CEO, HMG. “As a physician-owned and led organization, we have a responsibility to provide the best care at an affordable cost for the communities and patients we serve. We will continue to seek opportunities to provide options in our market that best meet our patients’ needs.”
The center is scheduled to open early this year and will include two surgical rooms and one procedure room and will accommodate a variety of procedures and surgeries including general surgery, gynecology, and orthopedics.
The reopening of the center will add 13 new jobs and will contract with a number of for anesthesiology, pathology and other services.
