As experienced developers, managers and joint venture partners, NueHealth facilities and teams are what make it all happen.  Our facility blog series will provide insight into the incredible staff and organizations that make up the NueHealth family of facilities.

Jefferson Surgical Center at The Navy Yard

Jefferson Surgical Center at The Navy Yard in Philadelphia, PA was opened in March of 2010 as a joint venture partnership with NueHealth, Jefferson Health System, and The Rothman Institute. The facility is currently 12,781 square feet with 4 operating rooms and 1 procedure room.  An expansion project is underway to add an additional 2,500 square feet to the facility.  With the expansion of the facility, the surgical offerings of the facility now include not only orthopedics and pain cases, but also Tenex, urology, and plastics cases.

In just seven years, the facility has grown from 931 cases to over 5000 cases annually.  Jefferson Surgical Center at The Navy Yard performs more orthopedic cases than any other ASC in the state of Pennsylvania.

The leadership team comprised of four strong female leaders, works tirelessly to ensure that everyone who works in the facility leaves feeling valued and supported.  The facility has a small number of employees, all of whom jump in and wear many hats to make sure that each patient receives the best care and has a positive experience with their surgery. Employees at the surgery center “feel fulfilled” because of the opportunity to work with such highly reputable surgeons with expert skill levels.  “Working in an ASC setting allows for the employees to fully engage in each part of the patient experience, making it a wonderful place to work and grow.”

Patients continue to choose the facility because of the exceptional level of care they receive from the staff and surgeons. The physicians and staff are all extremely caring professionals who are passionate about the work they do and believe that Together Everyone Achieves More, TEAM!

As a result of their teamwork, quality outcomes, and positive patient experiences, the facility has received a variety of awards and recognition throughout the years, including “Best Orthopedic Facility in Pennsylvania by ASCA”, and a “Center of Excellence” rating by NueHealth in the areas of supply chain and business operations.

Jefferson Surgical Center at The Navy Yard also received AAAHC certificate of accreditation..  AAAHC is an independent, not-for-profit organization that performs rigorous self-assessments and on-site surveys by expert physicians, nurses, and administrators to determine best care practices within an organization. What does that mean to the patient?  It means this organization cares enough about its patients to strive for the highest levels of care possible nationwide.

Thank you to the administrator, management team, nurses, physicians and staff that take pride in their profession and deliver a quality experience to the patients of Pennsylvania.
