In 1984, a group of local physicians in the Mobile area provided patients a choice of facilities by opening a state of the art free-standing, outpatient surgery center. This group of physicians recognized that top quality one-day surgery can be delivered in a cost effective manner, away from a hospital setting in a modern, convenient facility.
The center was relocated to it present location at 6144A Airport Blvd, adjacent to The Orthopaedic Group in July 2004. The Center is proud to be affiliated with Surgical Care Affliates, an Alabama based company that exclusively owns and operates over 130 surgery centers and surgical hospitals. Local physicians are majority owners and are very active in the management and direction of the facility.
The facility encompasses 19,000 square feet and utilizes four operating rooms and three procedure rooms. The Surgery Center employs 50 full and part-time employees.
The Center is licensed by the State of Alabama Department of Public Health as an Ambulatory Surgical Center, accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), and certified by Medicare.
