Main Line Health, Rothman Institute, health care management organization NueHealth, and several other orthopaedists have collaborated to open an ambulatory surgery center at Bryn Mawr Hospital. The Orthopaedic Surgery Center will occupy the fourth floor of a new medical office building on the BMH campus. An open house with a ribbon cutting and tours of the new facility was held on June 8.
As an extension of Bryn Mawr Hospital’s orthopaedic center of excellence, this new facility houses four operating rooms—each larger than 600 square feet. It also includes three 250-square-foot procedure rooms. Additionally, the center has special preoperative bays, post-anesthesia care unit bays, and recovery bays. An estimated 27 orthopaedic surgeons will perform procedures at the surgery center, which is now the largest freestanding ambulatory surgery center in the region.
“The Orthopaedic Surgery Center at Bryn Mawr Hospital will serve a premier destination for outpatient orthopaedic services and will capitalize on the legacy of superior orthopaedic care for which both Main Line Health and Rothman are renowned,” said Bryn Mawr Hospital President Andi Gilbert. “As our System looks for innovative ways to deliver care during this transformational time in health care, this new facility, designed with patient safety and comfort as a top priority, will provide high quality, outpatient surgery and procedures for a broad range of orthopaedic diagnoses.”
