Bend Surgery Center Operational Expansion Made Possible with Partnerships
The lack of access to recovery beds and staff has been a pressing issue for the last few years for the Central Oregon region. A new partnership with Bend Surgery Center, Summit Health, and Bend Transitional Care established a balanced solution with the ability to expand Bend Surgery Center's operating and procedure rooms and increase patient surgeries by 60%. Bend Transitional Care gives patients the space for overnight stays while Summit Health provides highly skilled nurses for patient overwatch. The perfect harmony of the three health care providers will give Central Oregonians the health care they deserve.
As a strong believer in healthcare partnerships, Bend Surgery Center is able to double its capacity of patients. As a surgery center, the surgeries being performed are typically in the surgical fields of gynecology, urology, bariatrics, general surgery, and total joint/spine. Because of COVID-19, surgeries like these were pushed or canceled. Now patients who have been needing surgery have the opportunity to do so, and much closer to home.
