Administrator to Know: Eric Day of The Center for Special Surgery

Eric Day, MBA, ATC, LAT (The Center for Special Surgery, San Antonio, Texas). Mr. Day is the administrator at The Center for Special Surgery at the Texas Center for Athletes medical complex. The center opened in March 2007 and has six operating rooms, eight preoperative bays and 19 recovery bays. The center specializes in orthopedics, hand surgery, pain management, ENT, podiatry and plastic surgery. He has worked at the ASC since its inception and moved from Austin to open the center.

Mr. Day started his career as an athletic trainer, working with athletes and doing sports medicine outreach activities in the Austin market for HealthSouth Corp. He made the transition into administration with the help and support of colleagues and began to work with outpatient rehabilitation and diagnostic imaging centers. From there, he made the transition into working with orthopedists at ASCs and was able to learn about the different aspects of the business.

At his current center, Mr. Day credits his "dedicated staff that provides great care to our patients" for its success. He notes that the center is always willing to try new things. "I have managers who are very motivated and get the jobs done in a timely manner," he says. "I have physicians who are very supportive of the staff and the goals that we have set for the center. No day is exactly like the other at our center."

Mr. Day loves his daily interaction with the people at the center and ensuring that patients leave the ASC happy with their experience. The Center for Special Surgery is doing well in a market that is "full of ASCs," according to Mr. Day. "We are lucky that we are supported by the physicians in our building, and they keep the center going."
