Bon Secours Millennium Surgery Center will offer same-day high-tech procedures
Greenville will take an important step into the future of healthcare when the Millennium Surgery Center opens in 2024.
The Millennium Surgery Center, a partnership between Bon Secours and Compass Surgical Partners, based in North Carolina, will offer orthopedic, spine, and ear/nose/throat procedures, as well as outpatient robotic joint procedures.
Traditionally, all orthopedic procedures were performed in the hospital.
“We are excited about the efficiency, and therefore improved patient experience, that this center will provide.” -Dr. Jay Womack, orthopedic surgeon at Bon Secours Piedmont Orthopedics.
The facility will be part of Bon Secours Saint Francis Millennium campus at 2 Innovation Dr. in Greenville.
“The Millennium Surgery Center will provide Greenville patients and employers with an additional option for their surgical needs,” said Matt Caldwell, president of Bon Secours St. Francis.
The surgery center’s primary goal is to provide high-quality procedures at lower cost to patients, insurance companies and employers, Bon Secours said in a statement.
“Millennium will bring robotic joint replacement to the region, providing patients with the highest level of care, restoring mobility and restoring patients’ quality of life,” said Dr. Jay Womack, orthopedic surgeon at Bon Secours Piedmont Orthopedics.
The 20,000 square foot facility will include six operating rooms and an outpatient surgery center with two procedure rooms.
“Millennium will be the first ASC to offer outpatient robotic joint replacements in the upstate region of South Carolina,” said Scott Bacon, vice president of business development for Compass. “That means cutting-edge care, at a lower cost, for patients in and around Greenville.”
What is an outpatient surgery center?
As more and more medical procedures are streamlined for patient comfort and better care, ambulatory surgery centers have evolved into modern healthcare facilities focused on delivering same-day surgical care, including procedures diagnosis and prevention.
