We broke ground on the $26.5 million, 33,000-square-foot facility last September and hope to open its doors by the end of this year. The center will have 6 ortho-centric ORs, a procedure room and 26 pre- and post-op bays. Before putting shovels to dirt, we explored several ownership mod- els, including partnering with a local hospital or a national ambulatory surgery center chain. Ultimately, our group entered into a joint ven- ture with Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center in Hartford, Conn. We'll own 65% of the center and gradually increase our share to Michael E. Joyce, MD | Glastonbury, Conn. A Facility Fit for Orthopedics We're set to open a surgery center built to meet the growing demand for outpatient spine and same-day total joints. • PICTURE PERFECT The Woodland Surgery Center, which is set to open in December 2019, will feature 6 ORs and a large physi- cal therapy space designed to enhance post-op recoveries.
