Jefferson Surgery Center in Cherry Hill, a $17 million joint venture of Jefferson Health, Rothman Institute, several Philadelphia-based physicians, and NueHealth LLC, is scheduled to open this month, NueHealth said Tuesday.
The 22,000 square-foot ambulatory surgery center on the former Kennedy Health System campus was planned before Thomas Jefferson University announced its intention to acquire Kennedy in January 2016. The facility has a full-time staff of 15 clinical associates, six operating rooms, two procedure rooms, and the capacity for 10,000 procedures annually, said NueHealth, a Leawood, Kansas, health care management and investment firm. The first procedure is scheduled for the 19th.
NueHealth will provide the new facility with day-to-day management and operations support, including accounting, materials management, payer contracting, benefits administration, and billing and collections.
