WESTCHESTER, IL — Regent Surgical Health, a leading developer of surgery centers and physician-owned hospitals, is partnering once again with Saint Mary's Regional Medical Center of Reno, Nevada, to develop and manage the Summit Surgery Center at Saint Mary's Galena. This is the second joint venture between Regent and Saint Mary's, a member of the Catholic Healthcare West system, following the successful turnaround of an underperforming ambulatory surgery center in Reno.
The partnership links Regent, Saint Mary's, and five physicians to the 17,600 square foot facility that includes two operating rooms, with a third room ready for build-out, and one procedure room. Located 15 miles south of Reno's city center, Summit Surgery Center at Saint Mary's Galena will specialize in ophthalmology, dental surgery, pain management, and orthopedics.
"Regent Surgical Health is excited to be working again with Saint Mary's to open the Summit Surgery Center at Saint Mary's Galena," said Tom Mallon, chief executive officer of Regent. "Saint Mary's has a professional executive team that recognizes the benefits of physician partnership, which include a focus on patients, fewer complications, shorter stays, lower costs, higher patient satisfaction rates and improved patient outcomes."
Regent's relationship with Saint Mary's began when it partnered with the hospital to reposition an ambulatory surgery center in Reno that was underperforming due to unprofitable services and rising costs. Regent renovated the building, upgraded its amenities, invested in technology, cut costs and added specialty services, which boosted revenues and improved cost-effective patient care.
