Ambulatory surgery center will improve patient access to high-quality spine care
APPLETON, Wis., — Advanced Spine Center of Wisconsin, an ambulatory surgery center (ASC) dedicated to providing high-quality spine services, has joined the provider panel at NOVO Health, the Appleton, Wis.-based health care organization connecting independent provider groups and employers.
Located in Neenah, Wis., Advanced Spine Center of Wisconsin has two operating rooms equipped with the latest in advanced surgical technology and three overnight suites. The facility, more than 8,000 square feet, offers a high ratio of medical staff to patients in order to provide the highest quality experience and attentive care.
The addition of the spine-focused surgery center will enhance access for NOVO employer partners and their employees.
“ASC’s deliver outpatient procedures in convenient and safe facilities close to home,” said Sandi Rochon, Chief Clinical Integration Officer at NOVO Health. “Our partnership with Advanced Spine Center of Wisconsin provides area patients access to timely, high-quality care at a Center of Excellence with opportunities for cost savings as well.”
ASC’s are able to provide high-quality surgery at a lower cost than hospitals. According to Medicare data, patients who have their surgery in an ASC pay an average of 41% less than patients having the same surgery in a hospital.
