SurgCenter Development, developer of ASCs and leader in outpatient total joint replacements, celebrates new milestone with formation of its 200th ASC, SurgCenter of Clearwater.

TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- SurgCenter Development (http://www.surgcenter.com) (SCD), a leader

in the development of ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs) throughout the U.S., celebrates the formation of its 200th ASC partnership in its 26-year history with the forming of SurgCenter of Clearwater, scheduled to open later this year.

"We continue to see the demand increase from patients who want high quality, convenient surgical care and from physicians who can offer their services in a setting that is patient-centric, comfortable and financially affordable," said Dr. Chris Urban, SurgCenter Development Principal and Chief Development Officer.

Sean O'Neal and Gregory George MD, PhD began developing ASCs in 1993. By fine-tuning their vision, SurgCenter Development was officially established in 2002. With unique backgrounds in both clinical and operational management, O'Neal and Dr. George formalized the structure used today, which provides for the most effective physician alignment while maintaining critical oversight.

Over the years, the company and its principals have been involved in the development of 200 centers (17 of which are currently under construction on in the pre-construction phase) in 26 states with more than 2,200 physician partners. SCD centers' specialties include orthopedic as well as podiatry, spine, ENT, pain and vascular.

"SCD is in full growth mode, and we expect 2019 to be our largest year yet with both de novo development and acquisition growth," said Dr. Urban.

Fueling some of SCD's growth has been the company's reputation as the industry leader in outpatient total joint replacement, having completed more than 36,000 since the program's inception. In 2018 alone, SCD centers performed over 8,000 outpatient total joint replacements.
