Representatives from Anderson Healthcare, SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital and physician partners recently celebrated the completion of the Anderson Surgery Center with a ribbon cutting.
The one-story building located on Anderson Healthcare Goshen Campus, houses Anderson Surgery Center, SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital Specialty Clinic, and a Physician Specialty Clinic. Located in the expanding I-55 Corridor planning area, the Anderson Surgery Center is designed to expand access to outpatient surgery in the community.
The Anderson Surgery Center offers surgeons the opportunity to perform specific procedures more efficiently and conveniently than they can in hospital-based operating rooms.
“Our physician specialists will perform highly-specific procedures in plastic and hand surgery, gynecology, podiatry, ear/nose/throat, gastroenterology and plan to offer pediatric surgeries through our partnership with SSM Health,” said Shauna Cooper, Anderson Surgery Center Director. “We are focused on ensuring patients have the best surgical experience possible while providing cost-effective care.” In addition, the facility houses a Physician Specialists timeshare suite and limited outpatient services from Anderson Hospital including Lab, X-Ray and Audiology.
The Anderson Surgery Center is licensed by the Illinois Department of Public Health and expects to soon receive accreditation by the Accreditation Association of Ambulatory Health Care.
A unique pediatric partnership with SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital, including SLUCare Physician Group, enhances pediatric services to include outpatient surgery in the facility as well. In addition to its specialty clinic opening Oct. 5, SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital plans to utilize the Anderson Surgery Center for pediatric surgeries in the future.
“Anderson Hospital and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital have a longstanding relationship that has enhanced pediatric services in Madison and our surrounding counties,” said Keith Page, president and CEO of Anderson Healthcare. “This facility continues that partnership while also offering exceptional outpatient surgery options for adults and children.” The specialty clinic is on target to open on Oct. 5.
In addition to the newly opened surgery and pediatric facility, a 34-bed acute rehabilitation institute is under construction and on target to open in summer 2021. The institute, to be managed by Kindred Healthcare, LLC, will care for adults recovering from conditions resulting in a loss of function or disability such as stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, neurological disorders, orthopedic or musculoskeletal conditions, amputation, and other disabling conditions. The institute will have all private rooms, with 12 beds specific to brain/stroke injury care. It will replace a 20-bed hospital-based acute rehabilitation unit at Anderson Hospital that Kindred has managed since 2004.
Anderson also announced plans for a third building on the Goshen Campus, a 50,000-square-foot medical building.
