This month marks Davenport, Iowa-based Mississippi Valley Surgery Center's 20th anniversary providing outpatient services to local residents.

Here are five things to know:

1. Since its inception in 1996, MVSC has provided outpatient services to Quad City residents.

2. To meet patient demand, MVSC opened a second location, Mississippi Valley Endoscopy Center, in 2004. MVEC offers GI procedures, and enabled MVSC to expand its offerings.

3. Nearly 10 years ago, MVSC became the first ambulatory surgery center in the state to offer outpatient total joint replacements. The center's surgeons have replaced more than 1,300 hips, knees, ankles and shoulders since 2006. The providers also offer minimally invasive spine procedures.

4. Last year, MVSC and MVEC partnered with Surgical Care Affiliates and Unity Point Health. Through the partnership, they are continually working on new strategies to increase value, lower costs and expand offerings through risk-based sharing opportunities.

5. MVSC and MVEC surgeons perform nearly 9,000 cases each year, and are comprised of 20 physician owners.
