1. The center will have four operating rooms and will perform mainly orthopedic procedures. If approved, the center could open by late 2021.

2. The ASC is being built in response to the growing surgical case volume at Kalamazoo-based Bronson Methodist Hospital. The hospital's surgical volume increased 15 percent over the last five years.

3. The health system anticipates shifting around 5,400 orthopedic cases from the hospital to the center annually.
